Missouri, Illinois lack meth clean-up laws

Christine Byers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has found that Missouri and Illinois have some of the highest numbers of known methamphetamine labs, yet both states fail to ensure that former labs get decontaminated when properties are seized.  Additionally, there are no laws mandating that new residents are notified of potential contamination before moving into the homes despite national experts' warning of the health risks of living in the contaminated spaces.
