Settlement Announced With EPA Over Asbestos

(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon and ten other states have reached a settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that will require the chemical industry to provide more information about the use of asbestos.  The mineral is used in several products for the construction and automotive industries.  Exposure to asbestos can lead to cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.  The Trump Administration challenged a 2020 court decision that required additional reporting.  The Biden Administration approved the settlement, which still needs court approval.
