Lautenberg's Widow Pushed Back Against Boxer on Chemical Safety Bill

Douglas Graham/CQ Roll Call
The fight over Lautenberg’s toxic chemical bill has gotten deeply personal. His widow has called Boxer to advocate for the legislation, according to multiple sources.

Multiple sources close to the bill say there is an easy legislative fix to the private causes of action issue, which will be addressed in Thursday’s meeting of committee Democrats with trial lawyers and other environmental groups.

This report has been updated to clarify that a broad environmental coalition wrote the statement opposing the Lautenberg-Vitter bill.
