(B&C®) and Bloomberg BNA were pleased to present “Chemical Regulation After the Mid-Terms: What We Can Expect to See in 2019,” the fifth and final webinar in the 2018 Chemical Policy Summit Series. The mid-term elections fundamentally changed the balance of power on Capitol Hill, and the result will have a significant impact on chemical regulation and environmental matters generally.  The Democrats are now firmly in control of the House, and Congressional oversight will be in high gear.  The House is widely expected to launch a dizzying number of investigations, almost certainly some of them related to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) positions on climate change, the role of science, ethical lapses, and deregulation in general.  The use of subpoenas is also expected to be in full display this year.  House and Senate leadership in key Committee assignments will change and so also will the personalities, tone, and content of Congressional oversight of and priority setting related to chemical and other environmental matters.  Speakers Alexandra Dapolito Dunn, Assistant Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention; Beau Greenwood, Executive Vice President, Government Affairs, CropLife America; Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, B&C; and James V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant, B&C, offered a timely, focused, and riveting discussion.

The panel discussed those findings and the conundrums facing small and large chemical manufacturers as well as their customers. They offered suggestions for companies, trade associations and the EPA. The goal: ensure new chemicals are responsibly reviewed, but continue bringing innovative chemicals to market.
