Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is working with Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and David Vitter, R-La., to move forward with legislation to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act in light of the recent chemical spill in West Virginia. "Hopefully this will get things kick-started and get things moving in the right direction again," Manchin said. Manchin believes that Boxer's concerns about federal regulations pre-empting state laws are manageable, according to this article.
