Adam Finkel Is an Author of Report Criticizing EPA Risk Assessment Processes

December 03, 2008
Penn Law Fellow Adam Finkel, executive director of the Penn Program on Regulation, is one of 15 authors whose report critical of the risk assessment processes used by the Environmental Protection Agency was issued today by the National Research Council.
