MTBE...It's Baaaaaaaaaaaaack

Remember how cozy Tom DeLay is with manufacturers of MTBE, the gasoline additive that has polluted groundwater throughout the nation? DeLay was one of the lead supporters of a provision in the House Energy bill approved last April that protects these manufacturers from lawsuits filed by communities with drinking water fouled by this poisonous chemical.

On Tuesday the Senate has passed its version of the energy legislation without the MTBE provision.

Now it's up to a House-Senate conference committee to come up with a final bill. DeLay's championship of these polluters' cause could hold the whole bill up, editorializes the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Stay tuned.
