Read the full story in the National Law Review.

We discuss current and potential state green chemistry regimes that have developed since our last article on this topic, discuss some chemical-specific laws, and assess what might be on the horizon now that TSCA reform has been enacted. There are many nuances in these laws, with certain exceptions and exemptions not as extensive as they initially seem. Adding to this complexity is the fact that guidance documents do not always align with the statutory language. We provide a high-level summary of the laws mentioned below, so it is still important to carefully review the detailed requirements of these laws if you are subject to them.
