Re: Chem Waste Management exemption
For clarity, I hope the people involved in this issue understand that even
though this rule is a final action and the exception was granted under a
previously past rule, it is still possible to litigate on this issue. In
more than a few cases, rules are passed that don't reflect the original
intent of the law.
I'd suggest finding a good lawyer and doing some digging into the
case law involve if you feel that it's worth persuing.
