GE-AGA-INGAA Comments on Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on PCBs: Reassessment of Use Authorizations (October 18, 2010)
On October 18, 2010, the General Electric Company (GE), the American Gas Association (AGA) and the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) submitted comments to EPA regarding Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on PCBs: Reassessment of Use Authorizations, 75 Fed. Reg. 17645 (Apr. 7, 2010). These comments note that PCB exposures declined dramatically, and will continue to decline as PCB-containing equipment and materials are removed from service and PCB-contaminated sites are remediated. In addition, there is overwhelming evidence that PCBs are not as toxic as EPA has contended.
