The following is an announcement which may be cross-listed at more than one
site. I apologize in advance for multiple listings.

Symposium:      Harmonization of State/Federal Approaches to Environmental Risk

Date:           May 20-21, 1996
Location:       Kellogg Center,  Michigan State University,  East Lansing, MI

Co-sponsored by:        Michigan Great Lakes Protection Fund
                            Michigan State University

Overview:   As environmental laws and regulations have evolved during the past
            two decades, a number of disparities have arisen in the way that
the risks of a particular chemical have been assessed and managed by different
federal and state agencies. This conference will bring together regulators from
the various arenas as well as others who have studied this problem to increase
public understanding of the issues and to make recommendations for ameliorating
the current situation. A wide range of viewpoints will be represented by the
invited participants and it is hoped that attendees will provide an even wider
spectrum of perspectives.
