CICC Writes to Director of COEH


06/26/06 Sacramento - Urges Continued Dialogue on UC Berkeley "Green Chemistry" Report

 

Writing to Dr. John Balmes, MD, Director of the Northern California Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) at UC Berkeley, CICC General Manager Bill Hegland and Sr. Consultant John Ulrich identify that "serious differences of opinion" exist regarding the COEH report to the CA Legislature entitled, Green Chemistry in California: A Framework for Leadership in Chemicals Policy and Innovation.  CICC supports a facilitated dialogue rather than a legislative debate as a means to narrowing the differences.   

 

"On June 28, 2006 Senate Environmental Quality Committee Chairman Joseph Simitian will hold and important informational hearing at which time we hope the Senator and the Committee will support the creation of a multi-stakeholder facilitated task force. Toward that end, we urge UC Berkeley and COEH to continue as active parties in the continuing dialogue; and further, that the University of California system provides adequate support and resources to enable participation and ongoing contribution."   more
