215 Lobbyists Led Chem Industry Effort for Weak Security Law in ‘06
October 22, 2007
Executive summary: This report demonstrates why real chemical security standards are languishing. By analyzing the 2006 lobbying records Greenpeace has identified 215 industry lobbyists that spent an estimated $16.4 million – and possibly as much as $74.5 million – to defeat strong chemical plant security legislation. That is more than the $10 million the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spent on chemical security for the entire fiscal year of 2007 or the $25 million requested for chemical security by DHS for fiscal 2008.
