Lynn L. Bergeson Quoted in Inside EPA Story “Chemical Officials Eye States’ Role in TSCA Reform”

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

Inside EPA included comments made by Lynn L. Bergeson at the keynote address of the Chemical Watch U.S. Regulatory Summit discussing “the prospects for more substantive U.S. legislative change following the recent mid-term elections.” Lynn Bergeson stated that the “’rights of states need to be part of the discussion on preemption in reform talks during the next Congress,’ adding that the importance of the issue ‘cannot be overestimated’ in securing approval of a TSCA reform bill. […] Bergeson pointed out during her Dec. 3 keynote that the spike in state chemical safety bans and other measures in recent years is a consequence of a lack of state confidence in the decades-old statute.” The full text of Ms. Bergeson’s keynote address regarding the 2015 legislative outlook for environmental laws is available online.
