    State Sen. Liz Krueger sent letters to city and state health commissioners regarding President George W. Bush"s changes to the Food and Drug Administration"s recommendations on fish consumption. The proposed changes would amend the advisory that pregnant women and children should limit the amount of fish consumed. These so-called midnight changes were proposed as Bush winds down his presidency, and will last into the next administration. The letter urges the state and city departments to provide information on mercury levels in fish. â??It will be critical for state and local health departments to ensure that women continue to have accurate information regarding the dangers of mercury exposure, Krueger wrote in the letter.
