Legislative and Regulatory Development

Peter's experience in both the public and private sectors has given him a deep understanding of the legislative and regulatory processes. During his six years of government service, Peter played a leading role in a wide range of regulatory and policy initiatives, including the PCB Penalty Policy, the National Municipal Policy for local sewage treatment facilities, pesticide establishment regulations, and obtaining federal program authorization for Indiana's hazardous waste regulations. Since leaving government, he has been involved in drafting and negotiating legislation on subjects including contribution under California's Superfund law, the sale of landfill gas, and, most recently, eligibility to file claims under California's Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund. While at Southern California Gas Company, he represented that company at the California Council for Environmental and Economic Balance, which monitors environmental legislation pending before the California legislature. In 2009, he served as a member of the Leaking Underground Fuel Tank Task Force (established by the State Water Resources Control Board Resolution 2009-0042), which developed recommendations to the State Water Control Board to improve the underground tank cleanup program.
