  • Thursday, March 14, 2019
    The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released a report on how two programs, IRIS and TSCA, are completing their mission to evaluate the risks chemicals pose to human health and the environment, transmit that information to the EPA offices that make regulatory decisions, and make the information available to the public.

    In September 2018, the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) promulgated amendments that eliminated or replaced most provisions of the Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and Resource Conservation final rule the Obama administration issued in 2016. However, several 2016 provisions were retained with modifications, including a provision relating to measuring and reporting volumes of gas vented and flared, which we describe here.

    In response to one frequently asked question (FAQ) on the EPA’s emergency management site, the Agency clarified when combustible agricultural dusts are subject to reporting under Section 312 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).

    In the latest of its periodic reports on what the legislative branch is doing about climate change, the Congressional Research Service (CRS) notes that lawmakers in 8 Congresses over the last 15 years have introduced bills to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 60 times. Many of these bills come in pairs (that is, an identical bill is introduced in both the House and the Senate). Also, some are reintroduced from one Congress to the next with few if any changes, so it would be incorrect to say that each bill represents a unique approach to cutting GHGs. In fact, as the CRS points out, the bills can be distributed into one of two “general frameworks”—cap and trade or carbon tax. While the frameworks differ substantially, both are rooted in economics.
