Loudoun Neighbors Against Toxic Sludge (Loudoun NATS) -- organization fighting
sludge though you have it listed under links. email =
brubin@starpower.net  -name = Barbara L. Rubin

comments = There is also a VA coalition of counties fighting sludge. Under your heading of counties banning you
list a few VA counties.  This is not really accurate. VA counties tried to ban sludge and were taken to court up
through the VA Supreme Court which upheld Virginia's Dillon Rule. The state Health Department embraces
sludge as does the whole VA Assembly.

Answer=The facts are the courts upheld legal bans on sludge. Based on EPA research, (40 CFR 503.9(t)  
your state health department and VA assembly has decided to kill a few of the country cousins. Apparently,
these home grown bad boys  using the legal system as a terrorist tool have never heard of the Boston
Tea Party.
