"Chemicals: Greens Launch Legal War On EPA's TSCA Rules"

"Several green groups launched a legal campaign last week against the Trump administration over a pair of rules issued by U.S. EPA under the nation's new chemicals law.

Environmentalists filed lawsuits Thursday and Friday in at least three federal appellate courts around the country seeking review of the rules, which EPA issued in June to guide risk evaluations and prioritization of chemical substances.

The new standards 'leave the public at risk from chemicals commonly found in our homes, schools and workplaces,' said Richard Denison, lead scientist at the Environmental Defense Fund, one of the plaintiffs."
