This panel will focus on the agency's development of a proposed rule to reduce the risks resulting from the use of TCE as a commercial degreaser, as a spotting agent in dry cleaning, and in certain consumer products as appropriate to reduce risks posed from its commercial and consumer use.
 
Vermont House approves water cleanup bill (04/03/2015)
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont House on Thursday passed and sent to the Senate a bill that raises more than $8 million for efforts to clean up Lake Champlain and other waters of the state. The bill takes aim at runoff laden with phosphorus and other pollutants coming from farms, roads, roofs and parking lots. It imposes $2.3 million in new fees on owners of those properties, as well as cities and towns, and it levies a new 0.2 percent surcharge on Vermont's property transfer tax. It also steps up enforcement against polluters.
