Announcement: Information Sesssion about the Governor’s Toxics Bill and Proposal

Darin Rice from Ecology’s Hazardous Waste and Toxics Reduction program will be visiting Spokane on January 26, 2015 to talk about the Governor’s Toxics Bill and proposal

” We have two different sets of rules for toxic chemicals. We regulate the disposal of spent toxic chemicals after their use in industrial processes, but not their use in products we use every day. The Governor is proposing both new legislation and additional funding for efforts to help the state tackle the concern of toxics in products. Ecology will outline the major components of the Governor’s toxics reduction bill and budget package.”
