More calls for environmental review of Asarco bidders

Two ranking members of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee are calling on the U.S. Attorney General to investigate the environmental records of companies bidding to take Asarco out of bankruptcy, but focused on Sterlite Industries and its parent company Vedanta.

In a news release committee chairman Rep. John Conyers, Jr., D-Michigan, and ranking Republican committee member Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas said they want the Attorney General to order the Justice Department look at the companies.

Arizona reps Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords have previously issued a similar call.
