Description

The Sacramento Bee found that under the Bush administration, the Environmental Protection Agency "has overstated its success in fighting polluters by lumping counterterrorism and narcotics cases led by other agencies into its environmental enforcement record." Among the findings of the Bee: the EPA "puffed up the number of criminal investigations it initiated," "overreported the number of cases it referred to federal prosecutors," and "padded the length of prison terms served for environmental crimes." Extensive use of documents and specific numbers are cited to back up the Bee's claims. Questionaire on how the Bee got the story is included.
