Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Article Includes Comments From James Aidala On Possible Chlorpyrifos Restrictions

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On March 29, 2017, the Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report included comments from, James Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), in the article “Trump Administration to Make Tough Decision on Dow Chemical.”
