One Last Conversation with EPA Assistant Administrator Alexandra Dunn

This week I had my final visit with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Assistant Administrator Alexandra Dunn.  As many of our listeners know, Alex Dunn lead the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention and was responsible for implementing the nation’s industrial and agricultural chemical laws, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), respectively.  Alex has done a superb job since taking office in early 2019, and her steady hand in managing TSCA implementation and a wide range of hot button pesticide issues has been effective and comforting.

Prior to Alex’s current role, she served as the Regional Administrator for EPA Region 1, and before Region 1, Alex served as the executive director and general counsel for the Environmental Council of the States.

We focused our discussion on a look back at Alex’s many achievements since taking office, including implementation of the amendments to TSCA, which Congress enacted in 2016.  Alex also addressed some of the most controversial pesticides -- glyphosate, dicamba, and chlorpyrifos, among others -- all the while implementing one of the most consequential pieces of environmental legislation ever passed by Congress.
