"EPA May Propose C8 Rules -- in 2012"

"CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Obama administration announced Wednesday it might write rules to limit the manufacture, processing and use of C8 and related perfluorinated chemicals, but would not propose any such regulations until at least 2012.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency officials issued their promised 'action plans' for perfluorinated chemicals, or PFCs, and three other families of chemicals that are under scrutiny for their potential health effects."
