Lynn L. Bergeson was quoted in Law360 discussing the recently released proposals to update the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). “‘Electing to eliminate any preemptive effect virtually assures the propagation of inconsistent, random state and local chemical regulations,’ Lynn Bergeson, managing partner of Bergeson & Campbell PC, said. ‘The patchwork approach to state and local regulations is the nemesis of the business community and a key driver for TSCA reform.’ Bergeson said there is not much room for negotiation under Boxer’s ... read more >
