Industry/Government Teleconference on Pollution Control. Proceedings National Telecast and Local Panel Sessions.
National Association of Manufacturers, New York, NY.
Proceedings of the closed-circuit Teleconference on Pollution Control conducted by the National Association of Manufacturers on May 26, 1971 are supplied in this compendium. Edited transcripts are provided for the national programs and local panel sessions. Seeking to bring business and government together for cooperative problem solving, the association's objectives were to: (1) provide industry with much needed and up-to-date information on federal and state rules and regulations in this rapidly changing field, and (2) bring directly to government officials the questions of industrial concerns regarding the administration, formulation, and enforcement of anti-pollution laws and regulations. National programs include a discussion with the Honorable Russell E. Train of national and international policy aspects of environmental quality control, Senator Edmund S. Muskie's views on legislative aspects of pollution control, and panel discussions on: (1) administering the 1970 amendments to the Air Pollution Control Act, (2) implementing the Refuse Act of 1899 and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, and (3) enforcing the Refuse Act of 1899 and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. Local programs held in 22 cities permitted representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Corps of Engineers, and state and regional environmental agencies to answer questions from industry representatives attending the Teleconference.
