"The Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act

"Solid Waste Disposal Act" enacting a filing system to keep track of the waste disposed of and then record for tracking.

The system has remained in the dark ages of paper and  hard copies.

The House Energy Committee has take the initiative to revamp this system so that  the files could be transferred to an electronic medium.

Modernizing the tracking system for hazardous waste shipments will save millions.

Congressman Waxman, the ranking member on the committee, has argued that the Republicans in Congress want to deregulate government into oblivion.

Yet he moved with enthusiasm on implementing an electronic manifest for the records on solid waste disposal. The EPA, among its many epic failures with waste management, current houses a tracking system that costs this country $400 million a year. That's nearly the amount of money lost on the Solyndra loan guarantee gamble.
