NASF Releases Public Policy Update for February 2021
With the Biden Administration’s work underway, the NASF says it is actively engaged in a wide range of regulatory, legislative and policy developments that impact the finishing industry.
The NASF has released its monthly Public Policy Update identifying a few of the emerging issues at the federal level as well as the association’s actions across key states.
The policy update discusses the “regulatory freeze” memorandum issued by the Biden Administration on January 20, federal OSHA COVID workplace standards, an Effluent Guidelines Program Plan released in January, PFOS and PFOA regulatory updates, and much more.
