Feds to GE: You're Still on the Hook for Toxic PCBs in Hudson River Fish

Daniel Raichel’s blogs on the NRDC website:  "A new report released yesterday by two federal agencies (U.S. Fish and Wildlife and NOAA) and the State of New York highlights a fact the General Electric Corporation has been trying to downplay for years--namely, that GE must pay for the damage it caused by dumping of millions of pounds of toxic PCBs into the Hudson River.

It joins a laundry list of other reports by the same trio on the many ways in which GE's toxic legacy has harmed the Hudson and the people who depend upon it.
