corporate accountability

Delaware's local pundit Al Mascitti has an opinion piece in the Wilmington News Journal on accountability for corporate citizens, in which he talks about continuing an industry tax on corporate polluters to provide money for environmental cleanup under the superfund. The law allowing for the tax was not continued in 1995, and the money that had been collected is running out this year. Under his analysis, it does seem to make more sense for the industry to help cleanup by contributing to the superfund than having all taxpayers share in the burden.
