On October 30, the Indiana Chamber – along with nearly 50 members (and a couple of other trade associations) – met in Chicago with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region V Administrator Cathy Stepp, Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Commissioner Bruno Pigott and their staffs to discuss environmental issues that impact the Indiana regulated community.

Chamber member Skipp Kropp of Steptoe & Johnson coordinated setting up the meeting with the agencies. EPA and IDEM presented recent developments in all of their major program areas. During the Q&A session, a few members discussed issues that they were experiencing with EPA’s implementation of the Clean Air Act and asked for clarification. Region V Administrator Stepp agreed to investigate the issues.

Stepp also offered to visit Indiana and meet with Chamber members in the future – and we intend to take her up on that offer, so stay tuned.

The agenda and handouts from the meeting are available to view.
