The Department of Toxic Substances Control ordered environmental testing of soil at 39 homes and two schools near the Exide facility in East Los Angeles. Supervisor Gloria Molina says state regulators haven't been doing enough to close the Exide plant in Vernon, which was ordered to conduct further testing after the elevated lead levels were found. All of the homes tested positive for levels of lead that require additional testing and evaluation.
