With just a couple of days to go before the summer recess there are a number of bills being introduced in both Houses that are meant solely for political consumption back in the district. It appears that the one bill of potential interest to the chemical safety community might fall into that category.
S 1388 Latest Title: A bill to require the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Secretary of Energy, to conduct a study on the public health and environmental impacts of the production, transportation, storage, and use of petroleum coke, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Sen Levin, Carl (D,MI)
S 1388 is almost certainly a companion measure to HR 2298.
