EPA and the Election - A Conversation with Jim Aidala
This week's All Things Chemical Podcast will be of interest to readers of the Pesticide Law & Policy Blog. A brief description of the episode written by Lynn L. Bergeson is below.
This week, I sat down with Jim Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant at B&C and its consulting affiliate, The Acta Group. As a former Assistant Administrator in what is now the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, Jim has a keen sense of how EPA prepares for and transitions to changes in Administrations. As we prepare for the November elections, we thought it would be good to check-in with Jim and get a sense of how our colleagues at EPA are faring. After reviewing key topics in the pesticide world, Jim walks us through how and when pesticide registrants and others in the commercial value chain can prepare for any forthcoming transition, consequential or otherwise. Jim discusses whether regulated entities can expect policy changes occasioned by a new Administration, regardless of who wins. Jim also addresses the implications of changes in the Supreme Court in light of Justice Ginsburg’s death. Jim’s insights in these areas is spot on and timely.
