Illinois official sues publishing firm due to air pollution concerns

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is attempting to reduce air pollution by examining the conditions surrounding a local printing plant. According to the Chicago Tribune, Madigan filed a lawsuit against Lake Book Manufacturing Inc. after the company installed 10 printing presses without construction permits.

The printing presses are capable of emitting air pollutants, and Lake Book Manufacturing could be penalized up to $50,000 for each violation and an extra $10,000 for every day it illegally operated the units. Lake Book Manufacturing's printing machines could produce more than 25 tons of volatile organic materials per year.

Madigan said that Lake Book Manufacturing did not submit annual emissions reports to the state's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from 1992 to 2010. Illinois EPA officials investigated the company's facility in November 2010 and found that the firm had not paid permit fees associated with the printing presses.
