Finally, we recap a story that is decidedly "interesting" -- because it may mean a change in how you offer security services to chemical producing facility, or how you secure your facility.

A report is out that says that a portion of the Clean Air Act and "other statutes" may mean the EPA has some say over security for chemical operations. The EPA is coming across as hesistant to accept that responsibility, but as we know, there are a lot of senators interested in seeing some definitive government control over security at chemical plants.
