Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted in Bloomberg BNA Special Report on Elk River Spill

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

Lynn L. Bergeson was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA Daily Environment Report special report, “Elk River Provides Tangible Illustration of Deficiencies in Public Data on Chemicals:” “Lynn Bergeson, managing partner of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., said that despite the many problems West Virginia’s ‘entirely preventable tragic spill’ has spotlighted, it is unlikely to hasten TSCA reform. ‘There are dozens of compelling reasons to reform TSCA, any one of them sufficient to prompt comprehensive TSCA reform and a decision to authorize resources so EPA could do its job properly. TSCA reform is not happening because of the absence of compelling—even urgent—justification for action. It is politics, a lack of industry resolve and tragically misplaced congressional priorities. Depending on the outcome of midterm elections, next year could well be harder,’ Bergeson told Bloomberg BNA.”
