[26] Rep. George's June 2, 2000 letter to DEP Secretary James M. Seif:
Two weeks ago, you sent a letter to Brenda Robertson, apologizing for factual errors in your department's investigation of her son's death. After reading the report your office sent her, I believe an additional apology is in order. I find that report to be incomplete, inaccurate, and lacking the depth and quality that this tragedy deserves.

[27] Rep. George's Aug. 3, 2000 letter to DEP Secretary James M. Seif: "Two months ago, I wrote to you urging the DEP to launch a full-fledged investigation into the Behun boy's death. I have yet to receive a response from you on the matter. However, I hold out hope that this new health data will spur the DEP to action."
