“I’m pleased the Governor has finally appointed a permanent director to oversee the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) after a six month vacancy. DTSC is in dire need of a shakeup and Exide appears to be the tip of iceberg of problems at DTSC - the state agency charged with protecting public health from toxic releases.

There have been repeated failures over decades that have impacted the health and environment of the residents in the communities I represent, including Boyle Heights, East LA, and Southeast LA.
