Plastic Waste – A likely focus of the Biden Administration

According to a December 18, 2020 Beveridge and Diamond law firm outlook of environmental issues in the Biden Administration  “… Control of the Senate will be crucial to the ability of the new administration to move forward with legislation … Regardless, the administration may seek to use the tools available through the Executive Branch to implement regulations and direct policy … we anticipate the following: Increased federal presence … Focus on environmental justice … Increased attention on the impacts of disposal of plastics …

Expect to see an effort to insert a federal role in the emerging contaminants and plastics debates … Return of wetlands enforcement … [and] Continued emphasis on FIFRA enforcement …” #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #FoodPackaging
