Filing of the lawsuit came a day after the Center for Public Integrity’s iWatch News highlighted the state environmental agency’s passivity in curbing emissions at the plant in the Mississippi River town of Muscatine.“Quite frankly, this lawsuit was surprising,” said Janet Sichterman, a spokesperson for the plant’s owner, Grain Processing Corp.

Staff changes at the Center

Dear readers and supporters,The Center for Public Integrity today undertook personnel and salary changes that put our organization on a solid financial footing for 2012. Sadly, that required laying off four professionals who are valued colleagues and friends. These are the positions we have had to cut:Two of our Managing Editors; an Office Manager; and a videographer.These individuals have done outstanding work for the Center and their commitment and loyalty have been valued enormously.

Center stands firmly behind its award-winning investigative work
