JD VANCE, Senator for Ohio

EAST PALESTINE, OH – Senator JD Vance (R-OH) visited a toxic waste holding site in East Palestine, Ohio today. While on-site, Senator Vance called on the Biden Administration to immediately relocate the waste to licensed disposal facilities:

“Why is this toxic mound of dirt still here in the first place, thousands and thousands of pounds of it? The reason is because the Biden Administration and the EPA is making it harder to get this stuff into licensed facilities where it can be properly disposed of,” said Senator Vance. “You have to get this stuff out of East Palestine and get it in properly licensed facilities or it’s going to continue to poison this community. There is no recovery for East Palestine until you get this stuff out of their community. It’s time for the Biden Administration to show some leadership and help us get this stuff out of East Palestine.”
