Legislators and Community Leaders Demand U.S. DOJ Oppose Exide’s Proposed Abandonment of the Vernon Facility

On Tuesday, Assembly Member Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles), elected officials and community leaders will hold a socially-distanced press conference to strongly oppose Exide’s proposed bankruptcy settlement, particularly in regards to the option for Exide to fully abandon the facility in Vernon and its responsibility to clean the environmental damage it has caused. California demands that Exide is held accountable for the lead poisoning of the environment and the surrounding residents.
