A Vernon battery recycler may not resume lead smelting until its furnaces can operate in compliance with tough new air district rules on arsenic emissions. The South Coast Air Quality Management District's hearing board ruled Tuesday that Exide Technologies, which is accused of endangering the health of more than 100,000 people across southeast Los Angeles County, must maintain "negative pressure" in its furnaces. That means particles from the smelting process must be sucked into air pollution control devices that can keep toxic compounds from wafting over neighborhoods.

When times got tough for business, the South Coast Air Quality Management District became a big target. While the AQMD implements rules to clean up air pollution, businesses complained that they were being squeezed by the organization's fines and permit process. Were the complaints exaggerated? AQMD officials have tried to correct misconceptions and to make the district more "user friendly."

So the South Coast Air Quality Management District Board killed a proposal to require large employers to offer ride-sharing incentives to workers, despite support from its staff, the public, business, government, and environmental groups (Times, Oct. 5). Once, again, the foxes are in charge of the henhouse, and the public is "protected" by the rigid arrogance of an agency whose only real effect is to prolong the problem it is charged with resolving.
