Compliments of the corrupt State of Texas, Arlington requests MSD exemptions for “some” properties to never be cleaned up, but offers federal money to “others” interested in applying for the grant funding…isn’t that called “eco-terrorism”?

I wonder why the city blog “forgot” to mention about MSD’s?
I wonder how the 402 E Division property by my home on Elm St got left out and became one of the MSD’s that was exempted from clean up?

I wonder if any of these folks care that gas well sites are now included on the list of future potential sites needing federal funding or state blessings from clean up when we are sitting on $80 million in gas drilling revenues?
