New Hampshire State Senator Dan Innis, R-New Castle is hoping that the second time will be the charm as he hopes to pass a law regulating toxins in water. His first attempt failed last year over a technicality, but the Seacoast legislator has gathered a large group of co-sponsors, including the Senate Majority Leader, Jeb Bradley.
The infamous Coakley landfill site in Rye has long been a source of pollution, dating back to the 1980’s. It is also a possible but unproven suspect in a seacoast cancer cluster. His legislation would require a mandatory limit on toxic strains of PFC’s to alleviate public concern and increase the state’s scientific knowledge of the pollutants. Roger Wood spoke to the Senator.
