Senator Boxer said: "I am pleased that AllenCo has suspended operations at its University Park facility. People in the community, including children, have reported experiencing dizziness, headaches, respiratory ailments, and recurring nosebleeds. I commend AllenCo for taking responsible steps to ensure that local residents will not continue to suffer."
On November 8th, Boxer visited the University Park neighborhood and held a press conference with local residents. At that time, she called for suspension of operations, and she is pleased that AllenCo has responded so quickly and clearly.
Senator Boxer said: "I am very touched by the tone of Mr. Allen's letter and called him personally to thank him. I am very optimistic this will be a new day for this community which has suffered so much."
