Senator Bond is pushing for a study of the long-term effects of lead on children in Herculaneum, the home of the Doe Run lead smelter. At least one city leader says Bond is misguided. Bond says he’ll try to get two or three million dollars put into an appropriations bill in Washington. He says the money would be used to find children who are victims of prior pollultion. But Herculaneum alderman Leslie Warden tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the money would be better spent to get children out of town than to keep them around as guinea pigs. He favors a federal buyout of contaminated properties in the town.
