Clinton's Earth Day announcement about TRI expansion was not about adding
new chemicals. It was about adding 7 new non-manufacturing sectors to the
list of entities who must report. The list of chemicals was expanded
significantly a couple of years ago, but most of that expansion involved
pesticides.

Bill Johnson, consultant to PIW, asked whether the changes to TRI
reporting will increase the number of chemicals requiring reporting.

I asked that question to Wes Taylor, the DNR's principal contact for
TRI reporting in WI. Wes said that to his knowledge, no chemicals
have been approved for addition to the TRI list. He said that the
de minimis values for several chemicals are being changed.

Wes said he knows that there have been several requests for chemicals
to be delisted, but he is not aware of any being approved for
delisting.

Do others on the list have additional or different info?
