Sixteen Legislators Ask Governor Brown to Delay “Green Chemistry” Regulations
Request Thorough Economic Impacts Analysis, Clearer Regulations - Posted 10/11/12
SACRAMENTO - [Chairman of the Senate Environmental Quality Committee] Senator Michael J. Rubio (D - Shafter)—along with 15 Senate and Assembly colleagues—sent a letter to Governor Jerry Brown to request the delay of proposed "Safer Consumer Products Regulations", also known as "green chemistry" regulations, until their true economic impact is known and a robust economic impact study is completed.
The current regulations appear to be open-ended, virtually unlimited in scope and unclear on the range of products that will be regulated by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC).
The letter urged Governor Brown to delay the regulations until an economic analysis can provide answers to the following questions / issues, currently unknown by DTSC: total costs that businesses and individuals may incur to comply with this regulation; total number of businesses impacted; number of businesses impacted that are small businesses, number of businesses that will be created / eliminated; and number of jobs created / eliminated. Read full press release.
