‘I Lied About Toxic Chemicals for Exxon, DuPont, and Their Lobbyists’

thedailybeast.com — The chemical industry's powerful trade group, the American Chemistry Council, has long maintained that it had nothing to do with an enormously successful but deceitful lobbying effort in state capitals to defend the use of potentially ineffective and toxic flame retardants in furniture.

American Chemistry Council lied about lobbying role on flame retardants, consultant says

publicintegrity.org — The council's credibility is crucial as it currently works with a bipartisan group in the Senate to rewrite the law governing the regulation of toxic chemicals. The bill to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act passed a Senate committee recently by a vote of 15 to 5 and last week picked up 14 new senators as co-sponsors, virtually assuring it can pass the Senate.

Debt and Tribal Payday Lenders

dailyyonder.com — In the battle to shield themselves from lawsuits and government oversight, some high-interest payday lenders have found unlikely allies: Native American tribes. In legal fights in California, New Mexico, West Virginia and Colorado, a group of Internet-based payday lenders have argued they are immune from lawsuits and regulation because they are "tribal enterprises."

Scientist with industry ties won't lead EPA chemical risk-assessment program

publicintegrity.org — The Environmental Protection Agency won't be hiring a scientist with strong ties to industry to run its chemical assessment program.
