Pence family business goes toes up and Indiana gets to pay for clean up.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/pence-family-gas-stations-left-145445975.html


Quote:
The collapse of Kiel Bros. Oil Co. in 2004 was widely publicized. Less known is that the state of Indiana — and, to a smaller extent, Kentucky and Illinois — are still on the hook for millions of dollars to clean up more than 85 contaminated sites across the three states, including underground tanks that leaked toxic chemicals into soil, streams and wells.

Indiana alone has spent at least $21 million on the cleanup thus far, or an average of about $500,000 per site, according to an analysis of records by The Associated Press. And the work is nowhere near complete.

Ooopp, here comes the echo chamber.

When are you going to be concerned about California's contamination caused by Democratic politics?

Let's start with Hepatitis.

The accident at the river was not intentional and was left by someone else for the Fed to clean up. The clean up in ID was left by the company that Pences's family built up and abandoned after it went bankrupt.

It was a family business, had it been successful would he have profited from it? He lost $600k when it went under so it seems he did have some involvement in the company.

This scam could never happen in Texas.

Because as I understand it this involve some sort of storage tank that leaked.

Anyway, in Texas, since the 50's, if you want a permit for a storage tank you have to put up a bond to pay for the clean-up of your site. This law was pushed through by the oil companies to limit the number of companies that could open a gas station. If you have to put the cash into escrow before you can start turning dirt it is just another cost a small business can bear.

But a big business can.

And when metal tanks started leaking during the 70's the escrowed funds were used to pay for the clean up of the site and the removal of the tanks.

Some sites were grandfathered in. A guy I knew in Dallas bought an old service station that had been there since the 30's and found himself on the hook for a few million in clean-up costs. The land was worth about what he paid for it plus the cost of clean-up, so he broke even. Or he lost several million dollars he would have made on the sale of the land.

Some sites in Dallas are still vacant after many years. This is prime real-estate that everyone has run away from. Eventually the government will be stuck with the clean up costs.

For all the legal talk coming from conservatives this is still a matter of integrity. Pence has none or he would have done the right thing.

See? I made a funny.... I said a conservatives would do the right thing.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
