Attorney General Liz Murrill shares concerns about the EPA's recent draft risk evaluation for formaldehyde

Attorney General Liz Murrill joined her fellow attorneys general from Iowa, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Virginia, to express their concern about the Environmental Protection Agency’s recent draft risk evaluation for formaldehyde. As leading agriculture states in America, we worry that the proposed Final Rule will, in effect, ban formaldehyde and place billions of dollars of livestock at risk of disease, jeopardize the food supply, and threaten the entire agricultural industry. We urge the EPA to look at the best available science, reconsider its draft evaluation, and maintain the current regulatory levels.
