Groups Sue EPA to Force Deadline for ‘Legacy’ Asbestos Evaluation

Bob Sussman, Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization attorney (and EPN member and former EPA Deputy Administrator and Senior Policy Counsel to the EPA Administrator), was quoted in this article concerning environmental groups’ demand for a court-ordered deadline for EPA to complete the second part of its asbestos evaluation under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). He was quoted in similar stories appearing in Law 360 and Reuters. Bob was also quoted in an Inside EPA article discussing an industry push to loosen TSCA regulations on five persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemicals.
