Capitol Hill critics quietly ask for help back home

Even U.S. EPA's fiercest foes on Capitol Hill sometimes come calling for favors. In early 2014, even with election-year politics in full swing, a spate of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle peppered EPA with requests, according to correspondence recently released to Greenwire under a Freedom of Information Act request. Lawmakers' asks ranged from considering grant proposals to investigating air pollution concerns to looking into a constituent's complaints that a pesticide made her dog develop seizures. "It's par for the course," said former Rep. James Moran of Virginia, who was the top Democrat on the House subcommittee that oversaw EPA spending before he retired last year.
