Bill attempts to hold corporations responsible for their actions

The Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill with the chemical security provision will allow local communities to know whether a neighboring hazardous plant is safe. If the corporation who owns the plant is acting negligently, this bill will enable states to file lawsuits against said corporations. This will allow local and state governments to protect their citizens from illegal waste dumping into nearby water sources preventing harmful side-effects.
