CalChamber Policy Advocate to Speak at Proposition 65 Conference

Samson_AnthonyCLRAnthony Samson, California Chamber of Commerce policy advocate on Proposition 65 and other environmental issues, will be a panelist at the Prop. 65 Clearinghouse’s Annual Conference on September 28 in San Francisco.

Samson will speak at the 11 a.m. morning plenary session on “Warning Regs: Is There Any Consensus?”

The CalChamber currently leads a coalition of more than 170 organizations that has been commenting at every stage as the state Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) develops significant regulatory changes governing how businesses provide warnings under Proposition 65, the most far-reaching consumer “right to know” law in the nation.

CalChamber’s extensive comment letters on the proposed warning regulations can be found on the product regulation issues page at calchamber.com.

The CalChamber is a supporting sponsor of the day-long Prop. 65 conference.

Other conference sessions will cover such topics as: setting safe harbor numbers; the science of naturally occurring; and the push to take cases to trial.

Breakout sessions will examine: how safe use determination works; supply chain realities; and negotiating private settlement fees.

The lunch time program is titled “A New Class of Prop. 65 Plaintiffs.”

More information on the conference is available on the CalChamber web calendar.
