AGA Joins Multi-Industry Letter to Senate on TSCA Legislation (Aug. 21, 2012)

On August 21, 2012, AGA signed onto a letter to the Senate from about 70 trade associations asking the Senate to set aside S. 847 and to work instead on a more pragmatic, bipartisan bill to revise the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The Utility Solid Waste Activities Group (USWAG) also joined the letter. The proposed legislation is highly unlikely to be passed in this Congress, but it could be picked up again in January, so it is important to weigh in now against a bill that would give EPA far too much leeway to make TSCA regulation more stringent and unworkable including for EPA s PCB regulations applicable to utilities.
