TIME Magazine Quotes Lynn L. Bergeson In “Will Congress’s Chemical Safety Reform Protect Us? It Depends”

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On May 26, 2016, TIME Magazine published an article, “Will Congress’s Chemical Safety Reform Protect Us? It Depends,” reporting on the bipartisan passage of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, quoting Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell P.C. (B&C®), Lynn L. Bergeson.

Lynn Bergeson, managing partner at the environmental law and government affairs firm Bergeson & Campbell, says the new approach could be seen as a “don’t call us, we’ll call you” approach for the states. “States that are mindful of what they need to do to protect their citizens don’t want that,” she says.
