As I mentioned this weekend, I expect that the February
numbers will be published early in time for Thursdays House hearing on HR 4007.
If the numbers continue to improve like these latest figures show, some of the
heat will be off of Director Wulf at that hearing.
I spent 15 years in the US Army as an Infantry NCO. After getting out of the Army I started working in the chemical industry, getting my BSc Chemistry degree while working as a technician. I spent 12 years working as a process chemist in a specialty chemical company. Most recently I worked as a QA/R&D Manager in a specialty chemical manufacturing facility. Currently I am working as a freelance writer.
