The hearing follows on a series of five stakeholder meetings held between EPW staff and both industry and environmental advocacy groups. It is the first sign in quite a while of potential movement in the seemingly futile attempt to modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The lack of movement is despite support for TSCA reform by both industry and advocacy groups.
Scheduled to provide testimony at the hearing are:
Mr. Ted Sturdevant
Director, Department of Ecology
State of Washington
Ms. Charlotte Brody
Director of Chemicals, Public Health and Green Chemistry
Mr. Cal Dooley
President and CEO
American Chemistry Council
Mr. Robert Matthews
McKenna Long & Aldridge
Dr. Richard Denison, Ph.D.
Environmental Defense Fund
