      ENVIRO - LOOKING TO LEAVITT FOR ANSWERS: The NYT reports this morning

      http://www.nytimes.com/2003/11/06/politics/06EPA.html

      that, with Gov. Mike Leavitt poised to take charge of the
      Environmental Protection Agency, lawmakers are demanding "an
      investigation into a Bush administration decision to drop air
      pollution enforcement action against 50 coal-burning power plants."
      Senate Democrats want to know why the EPA failed "to enforce the
      previous, stricter rules" and charge "the new rules could endanger
      ongoing cases, where utilities face billions of dollars in dirty air
      fines." The pollution from the relaxed regulations, among other
      things, would "aggravate asthma, chronic bronchitis and pneumonia."
      Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy expressed outrage, stating "the White
      House policy was intended to 'coddle the big polluters, and the
      public be damned.''"
