All Things Chemical® Podcast: What to Expect on Capitol Hill and at EPA OCSPP in 2023 — A Conversation with Jim Aidala
This week, I sat down with Jim Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant at B&C and its consulting affiliate, The Acta Group. We discuss what to expect in 2023 from Capitol Hill and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) when it comes to key chemical matters. Jim is, of course, one of the country’s most talented pesticide experts and, as a former Assistant Administrator of what is now OCSPP and a founding member of the Capitol Steps, offers laser-focused insights on chemicals with wit and flair. We cover a lot of territory -- EPA staffing deficits, a divided Congress, and the many daunting legal, science, and policy issues that this OCSPP is tasked with solving, or at least managing.
