Lautenberg Reintroduces TSCA Reform Bill Absent GOP Support

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

Pesticide and Chemical Policy quoted Lynn L. Bergeson in their April 12, 2013 Daily News Alert article on the reintroduced Safe Chemicals Act: “The Lautenberg bill is “the same as it ever was … and offers no changes from what was passed,” says Lynn Bergeson. “It is discouraging there is nothing new.” But something new could be coming soon, specifically a Republican proposal to revamp TSCA from Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), the ranking member of the EPW committee. Details have been few and far between, but Vitter has been working on a proposal since the fall (See Pesticide & Chemical Policy, Oct. 12, 2012, Page 1). “Everyone is waiting for Vitter to see what he comes up with and if that provides meaningfully opportunity for progress,” Bergeson tells P&CP.”
