RALEIGH - North Carolina environmental groups want the Senate to put the brakes on a bill that rolls back state and local regulations that are tougher than federal law.

It also loosens rules intended to protect water quality in two major river basins, allows businesses or utilities to dispose of waste on site rather than transporting it to a landfill and potentially weakens standards to mitigate damage to wetlands.
