Reactions to reports of formaldehyde in Charleston's water come after Dr. Scott Simonton of Marshall University and the Environmental Quality Board found the chemical in Vandalia Grill's water, the House rejects a resolution that would allow active-duty personnel to vote in the legislature, and researchers from Downstream Strategies raise more questions about this months chemical spill. Also, many county school systems struggle to make 180 days of classroom education.
