Chemical companies seek to limit federal green building
Chemical companies are lobbying the U.S. Congress to limit government use of proposed, tougher green building codes in the hope that alternative standards may be adopted. Generally supportive of efficiency programs because they promote the use of insulation and other chemical products, the American Chemistry Council in Washington and other groups say the green building standards are veering into the trickier area of health policy. They say the new rules will stigmatize chemicals without providing much benefit.
