Lynn L. Bergeson quoted in Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report Story “Senate TSCA Modernization Talks Collapse; Reform Supporters Look to Next Congress.”
The September 19, 2014, Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report featured comments by Lynn L. Bergeson regarding the collapse of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform talks, specifically efforts to revise the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (S. 1009). Bergeson “told Bloomberg BNA the collapse of the bipartisan Senate discussions on TSCA reform was disappointing but not surprising. ‘Stakeholders can be encouraged by the late rally in the legislative cycle, and perhaps by whatever progress was made to move the needle closer to a version of reform legislation that both addresses TSCA’s deficits and is capable of garnering bipartisan support,’ Bergeson said. ‘At the least, whatever newer version of CSIA that emerged from the process may set the stage for early and productive TSCA reform legislation in the new Congress.’” Background information and analysis can be found in Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.’s September 25, 2014, memorandum “Summary of Changes in the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (CSIA, S. 1009) and the Boxer TSCA Version Released September 18, 2014,” available online.
