Press Release

Washington, DC -- “In order for the U.S. Chemical Safety Board to continue to carry out its important role, I was among the first to call for the resignation of Chairman Moure-Eraso. The CSB needs leadership committed to implementing more rigorous standards and accountability as its critical safety mission is too important to be undermined by ineffective leadership. After serving many years in local, regional and state air quality agencies and having authored the most stringent and effective worker safety and air quality rules in the country, I know how critical it is to have effective leadership in this important organization. I am pleased President Obama recognizes the need for reform of the agency and is taking this necessary step,” said Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11).
