Macomb, IL – Robert F. Kennedy Jr says the Bush administration's environmental policies are causing direct harm to Illinois residents. Kennedy made his comments at WIU, where he spoke to a full house at Western Hall.
Kennedy says the president and his cronies rolled back environmental protections for rivers. He feels fish populations in Illinois have been contaminated as a result of this.
Kennedy says the mercury in Illinois' waters would be eliminated if utility companies spent just 1% of their plant revenue on pollution control.
