The Texas Twist on Regulating Plastics in the Environment

B&D’s Karen Hansen (Principal, Austin), Sarah Munger (Associate, Austin), and Michael Vitris (Associate, Austin) will present an Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Houston Chapter webinar, "The Texas Twist on Regulating Plastics in the Environment." The program will take place on Wednesday, October 28 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. CT.

Drawing on their experience helping clients in Texas, the U.S. and around the globe to meet environmental, health, and safety challenges, the speakers will conduct a timely panel discussion of plastics regulations in water, air and waste that Texas is leading. Discussion topics will include:

  • Citizen suit enforcement against companies under the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation & Recovery Act
  • Citizen suit advocacy and enforcement with EPA and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)
  • Proposed changes in how plastic products and wastes will be managed in Texas
  • Strategies and best practices to manage the EHS risks of plastics

There is no charge and you do not need to be an ACC member to attend this program, but advance registration is required. Please RSVP here.
