Unity Is Urged on Chemical Policy in State

           
Leaders of California's chemical companies gathered Wednesday in Los Angeles to discuss how best to respond to growing pressure to develop a new state policy that would provide the public more protection from toxic compounds in consumer products and the environment. The chemical industry forum was spurred by a University of California report, released to the state Legislature in March, that advises California to adopt a comprehensive policy because the public is inadequately protected from toxic compounds that are amassing in people's bodies and the environment. John Ulrich, a senior consultant to the Chemical Industry Council of California, called the report a "call to action" for businesses and urged them to act now to help craft a state strategy for regulating chemicals. About 100 industry representatives, from industrial giants such as Dow Chemical Co. and DuPont Co. to small biotech firms, attended the forum. However, chemical company representatives at the meeting expressed mixed feelings about California charging ahead.
