Nov. 26, 2018
Senate Republicans are urging President Trump to nominate a leader to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board.

Following a similar call from the House in August, some Senate Republicans are appealing to President Trump to nominate a new chair to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, according to an article from The Wall Street Journal.  Industry groups are also calling on the president to back the agency, which he  targeted for elimination soon after taking office.

The Chemical Safety Board has lost more than half its investigators since Trump took office, according to the article. The agency’s previous chairwoman quit in June.
