The production and handling of toxics and other harmful chemicals are regulated under a series of statutes administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). The Trump administration took a series of actions to delay, weaken, or rollback toxics and chemical regulations under the charge of the EPA and DOT. State attorneys general stepped in to ensure that the EPA and DOT act to protect communities from toxics and harmful chemicals.
