California marching toward adoption of green chemistry regulations

I foresee a bureaucratic meltdown that will become so untenable, that many companies will no longer do business in CA.
More than two years behind schedule, with no one apparently satisfied with the form of its regulations, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) appears to be taking the final steps toward adopting its green chemistry regulations, otherwise known as the "Safer Consumer Products Regulations." These groundbreaking regulations will establish a process to identify and prioritize consumer products containing chemicals of concern for evaluation of safer alternatives and the potential imposition of restrictions by DTSC.
The DTSC covers THOUSANDS of ingredients and chemicals.  Even some that have not been shown conclusively to cause cancer.  What CA should do, instead, is to concentrate only on those that have been shown conclusively to cause cancer.

But...that would make too much sense, no?

And what the hell is a "multimedia evaluation"???
