Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins is calling for new legislation to track mercury pollution and to slash emissions from the nation's power plants. She made the announcement shortly after two new studies determined the upper Androscoggin and Kennebec rivers were "hot spots" for mercury.
"I have long-argued that EPA used faulty science in order to justify an insufficient mercury rule, and these studies prove it," Collins said in a statement Tuesday.
