"Chemical Safety Board To Issue DuPont Report Next Week"

"CHARLESTON, W.Va. --  After months of delays, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board plans next week to release its report on safety problems -- including a January 2010 phosgene leak that killed a worker -- at the DuPont Co. plant in Belle.

Board members voted unanimously last week to issue the report, ending a string of votes in which holdover members from the Bush administration blocked efforts by chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso to make the agency's findings public.

CSB officials plan to release the report during a press conference on July 7, and then allow 45 days for public comments. The plan avoids a public meeting at which board factions were expected to bicker about other issues unrelated to the DuPont investigation."
