Earlier this week I noted that Sen. Vitter (R,LA) introduced S 1781, General Duty Clarification Act of 2013. This is a much delayed companion bill to HR 888 which was introduced in the House last February. This bill (and its companion that has yet to be acted upon in the House) would restrict the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to require, under the General Duty Clause of the Clean Air Act, the use of inherently safer technology as a security measure at chemical facilities with significant inventories of toxic inhalation hazard (TIH) chemicals.
