This year Republicans in the House of Representatives lashed out at Rafael Moure-Eraso (right), chairman of the Chemical Safety & Hazard Investigation Board (CSB), which is charged with investigating major chemical accidents. Rep. Darrell E. Issa (R-Calif.) and several other House Republicans accuse Moure-Eraso of serious management problems at CSB, which they blame for long-delayed reports and allegations of a hostile working environment by some staff. Moure-Eraso said the charges were political and asserted that he would not resign. Instead, he offered a reform plan.
