EPA chief delays methane rule at behest of oil and gas firms


Ahead of his visit, environmental advocates said they were hopeful that the administrator's arrival might signal additional support for East Chicago's residents, although they also said they have yet to see any indications of pending action.

"The reason I'm here is because it's important that we restore confidence to the people here that we're going to get it right going forward", Pruitt said.

"The report that the federal government is planning to close the Region 5 office of the EPA should be concerning to us all", he said in the statement.

The meeting between Pruitt and residents was "intense", with people providing emotional first-person accounts, according to Robert Kaplan, acting regional administrator for EPA's Region 5 office in Chicago.

"But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today ", he said. It is unclear what Mr O'Reilly will do next - or if he will contest the terms of his exit.

The White House proposed significant cuts to the EPA, and many officials think it could come at the expense of a couple of regional offices. The EPA sent officials to the city to test the water of the homes near the Superfund site and found that not only were there high levels of lead in the tested homes, but that the contamination was likely city-wide problem; lead pipes and water that had been improperly treated for decades were the culprits.

Bolling-Williams, who was invited to Pruitt's meeting, said: "Pruitt listened to all of our concerns but he did not offer any solutions". In March, the residents of East Chicago signed a petition, urging the agency to address an urgent crisis of lead in the water supply. "He should sit down with the EPA employees and answer their questions about how these cuts will impact their work, and the environment". O'Grady said buyouts and early retirements won't achieve that goal, because the math makes it unrealistic.

"As I talked to some of the people traveling with the administrator today - they have reaffirmed that there were no discussions about shutting the Chicago office", Kaplan said.

Aaron Hernandez: What we know on day of his death
The mother of Odin Lloyd, who was murdered in 2013, will move forward with her lawsuit against Hernandez, according to TMZ Sports. Hernandez was born in Bristol, Connecticut, and was a star tight end at the University of Florida.

But superfund site resident Maritza Lopez welcomed Pruitt's visit.

Pruitt toured the complex with IN officials, including Gov. Eric Holcomb and Sen. He met with residents and toured the complex where evacuations began a year ago.

The housing complex was built over land that had been used by lead and copper smelting companies for almost a century before being shut down in the early 50s.

"EPA is focusing on getting results by improving environmental conditions and human health in places like East Chicago", EPA spokesman J.P. Freire said in a statement.

The officials had no other details about the attacker. "We don't have a precise idea of the origin of the shots fired", he said. Three police sources said, however, that the shooting could have been an attempt at an armed robbery.
