NORA Representatives and Senator Tom Udall's Staff Meet in Washington, D.C. to Promote TSCA/PCB Reform
Gainesville, Virginia – (September 11, 2013) – On September 9th, 2013, NORA representatives Scott D. Parker, Jack Waggener, and Steve Shimberg met with Jonathan Black, Senior Policy Advisor for Senator Tom Udall (D-New Mexico) and a member of the Committee of Environment & Public Works, in Washington, DC. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss TSCA Reform regulations currently moving through Congress.
Initial TSCA reform legislation was introduced earlier this year by Republican Senator David Vitter and Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg. However, in June 2013, Senator Lautenberg passed away. Senator Udall will be instrumental as TSCA Reform legislation proceeds through the U.S. Senate.
"NORA is actively engaged with the PCB/TSCA Reform efforts in Washington, DC," said Scott D. Parker, NORA Executive Director. "We thank Senator Udall for taking the time to meet with us regarding this important reform effort as it relates to the members of NORA."
