In the past year Perry has cut funding for clean air programs and sued the Environmental Protection Agency to avoid enforcing clean air laws. And he routinely blasts the White House for tightening environmental standards, signaling what he would do if elected president. (AP Photo/Toni Sandys, Pool)

Their work paid off last month, when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state regulators cracked down on a soil recycling plant that was blamed by air quality officials for a putrid stench that sickened dozens of children and teachers at a nearby school.
