The Freedom to Be Poisoned

The Missouri House passed legislation "relaxing" rules for contractors removing lead-based paint Thursday, apparently unconcerned about the safety of those workers and the people around them. 

Who pushed the bill?  Rep. Kurt Bahr (R-O'Fallon), a painting contractor; Rep. Andrew Koenig (R-Winchester), the owner of a painting company; and Rep. Rick Brattin (R-Harrisonville) a contractor who wants fewer rules on how he deals with lead paint.
