U.S. Senate passes bill to transfer responsibility of West Lake Landfill

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The U.S. Senate has passed a bill that would transfer the responsibility of the West Lake Landfill.

As concerns grow over radioactive waste at the landfill, there has been a push to take responsibility away from the EPA for months. The bill would allow the Army Corps of Engineers to be in charge of the site.

A companion bill has been introduced in the U.S. House.
