The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently finalized the list of the next 20 chemicals to undergo risk evaluation under the Toxic Substances Control Act. Do you think the results of the evaluation will help protect individuals in the industry?

I would hope it will help protect folks, but all too often, the science is secondary to the bureaucracy and lawsuits. I hate to be this cynical, but any changes the risk evaluation proposes won't be law until the mid-2030's at the earliest by the time the red tape and lawsuits are done.
