Will 2008 Be the Year of Green Chemistry?

As Governor Schwarzenegger prepares for his State of the State Address this afternoon, questions linger about the fate of his administration's Green Chemistry Initiative. Launched last May, the initiative has missed its January 1 deadline for publishing a list of policy options. While a short delay certainly need not be fatal, the initiative could use a public push from the Governator.

For more information on the need to reform chemical policy in California, see my Capitol Weekly article from last month, Cal-EPA plan could make state a leader in toxic chemicals policy.
