On March 27, 2014, Jessica DeMonte gave the following presentation focused on US chemical safety updates to the Ohio Chemical Technology Council.  The presentation outlines the mandates of Executive Order 13650, which was issued by the Obama Administration in August 2013, and analyzes the regulatory expansion that is likely to occur as a result of this order.  It further provides details on the key components of the proposed legislation that was introduced in Congress following the Elk River chemical spill in West Virginia (S. 1961 and companion, H.R. 4024), which would establish a program designed to prevent impacts from chemical sources on drinking water.
