This particular role, and we looking at this is I think particularly egregious because the low is really as indicated in review mirror. It's done. It was done at lower costs. India? And it's about protecting our kids from powerful neuro talks, and that can really robbed them of a full and productive life. The mercury and toxins act was enacted to limit. Mercury.

And it's two thousand twelve impact analysis of the rule when it included co benefits estimated benefits were six million dollars evaluating mercury alone.
