CA to Add Chemicals to Proposition 65 List Using the So-Called "Labor Code Mechanism"

Arnold & Porter Advisory

The clock is now running on a 30-day comment period. The State plans to list the chemicals using the so-called "Labor Code mechanism" -- a process that it rarely used in the past and is the subject of heated controversy and legal challenge.
