NWRA’S GERMAIN TESTIFIES BEFORE TEXAS STATE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE Testimony Focused on Federal Laws and Regulations Governing Landfills
Arlington, VA – Today, Anne Germain, Vice President of Technical and Regulatory Affairs for the National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) testified before the Texas House of Representatives’ Environmental Regulation Sub-Committee hearing on Air Quality and Municipal Landfills at the committee’s request.
The sub-committee will hear testimony from Germain and others as it considers whether state regulations of landfills and public notice requirements adequately maximize participation from the public and stakeholders.
Before her testimony, Germain said, “Landfills are among the most highly regulated facilities in the country and public input and stakeholder involvement has been a cornerstone of these regulations. I look forward to talking about these regulations with members of the committee and discussing the steps our members take to remain in compliance. The Texas legislature and the general public can rest assured that NWRA members make every effort to comply with local, state, and federal regulations governing the construction, operation, and maintenance of landfills. Our members want to be good neighbors.”
