Vermont Business Magazine Governor Phil Scott has issued Executive Order 13-17(link is external), forming the Vermont Interagency Committee on Chemical Management. The committee is charged with reviewing State chemical regulation and policies to ensure compliance and further reduce risks posed by the use or storage of unsafe chemicals. The committee will incorporate the expertise of State agencies and outside experts who will participate in the citizen advisory panel.The committee will be responsible for better coordinating chemical management in the state, and will recommend any necessary actions to address these risks. It is also tasked with developing a streamlined electronic reporting system to facilitate businesses compliance with reporting requirements, and with improving state agency, business, and public access to information about chemicals in the state.“The discovery of PFOA contamination of the drinking water in Bennington County was a wakeup call for Vermont,” Scott said. “I am directing this committee to find solutions that will ensure proactive coordination among the agencies charged with chemical oversight to protect Vermonters from unsafe chemicals, increase public access to information about chemicals in our communities, and help Vermont businesses comply with existing law.”In response, Lauren Hierl, Political Director of Vermont Conservation Voters, said in a statement: “Vermont Conservation Voters (VCV) supports Governor Scott’s proposal to begin work on better coordinating existing toxic chemical programs and identifying ways to better inform Vermonters about chemicals in their communities. However, with tens of thousands of untested chemicals on the market and real harm being felt in our communities today — as highlighted by the PFOA drinking water contamination in several Vermont towns — it’s clear that we need further action as soon as possible. VCV looks forward to working with the Interagency Committee on these issues while also continuing to advocate for additional policies to ensure all Vermonters have clean drinking water and safe products in our homes.”The Committee, which will be chaired by the Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources or her designee, will hold its first meeting in September. The other agencies that will form the committee are:Agency of Agriculture, Food & MarketsAgency of Commerce and Community DevelopmentDepartment of HealthDepartment of LaborDepartment of Public SafetyAgency of Digital ServicesThe committee will consult with a citizen advisory panel comprised of public health and chemical policy experts, industry representatives – including a small business representative – and individuals with toxicology, risk assessment, environmental law and data management expertise.A copy of the executive order can be found here(link is external).Source: Governor 8.8.2017

Also, DLSU is one of the top schools in the country in terms of quality of education,” Ordiales said.She added: “I see this also as an opportunity for me to improve my volleyball skills. I also hope to contribute to their winning tradition by applying what we practice, use my own intellect in regards with playing strategy with the help of my skills.” Ordiales will be a welcome addition for the Lady Spikers with the impending graduation of Lourdes Clemente and Ilongga Aduke Ogunsaya and Norielle Ipac already in their final year next season.Ordiales was a former standout of Living Stones International School-Bacolod before suiting up for the National University Lady Bullpups in the UAAP Season 81 juniors volleyball.At the Lady Spikers, the 5-foot-11 Ordiales will also be joining fellow former Living Stones standout Matet Espina, who was not inserted into the DLSU lineup this season due to an injury./PN
The youngster joined City in 2016 but has spent the last three years out on various loan deals in Spain, Brazil and Mexico.He’s not part of the plans at the Etihad right now but, perhaps surprisingly, one they’re not giving up on.Antena 2 report that Atlético Nacional were keen on the forward this summer and proposed a loan deal with City. However, it was quickly dismissed by those in charge at the Etihad.They consider Moreno a talent for the future and want to keep him on their radar so are intent on sending him to Europe instead of back to South America.In fact, as we’ve previously covered from Portugal, they’ve already lined up a deal with Portimonense, and this report from the player’s native Colombia suggests that’s already a deal.It’ll be the third time Moreno has been on loan with a European side after spells at both Deportivo La Coruna and Girona but he’ll be hoping this one proves more successful than those two. Such is the depth of quality at Manchester City, breaking through as a youngster is near on impossible. That’s proven to be the case for Marlos Moreno so far.
