President Clinton signed an executive order that requires companies seeking to do business with the federal government to report toxic chemical emissions. "This is an insurance policy," said Carol Browner,Environmental Protection Agencychief. "The idea is to prevent another Love Canal," says TIME's Andrea Dorfman.
