FOSTTA’s vision is to focus on major policy-level issues of importance to states and tribes, recruit more senior state and tribal leaders, increase outreach to all 50 states and some 560 federally recognized tribes, and vigorously seek ways to engage the states and tribes in ongoing substantive discussions on complex and oftentimes controversial environmental issues. In January 2002, the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS), in partnership with the National Tribal Environmental Council (NTEC), was awarded the new FOSTTA cooperative agreement. ECOS, NTEC, and EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) are co-sponsoring the meetings. As part of a cooperative agreement, ECOS and NTEC facilitate ongoing efforts of the state and tribal leaders and OPPT to increase understanding and improve collaboration on toxic chemicals and pollution prevention issues, and to continue a dialogue on how Federal environmental programs can best be implemented among the states, tribes, and EPA.

II. Background

     The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), 15 U.S.C. 2609 section 
10(g), authorizes EPA and other federal agencies to establish and 
coordinate a system for exchange among federal, state, and local 
authorities of research and development results respecting toxic 
chemical substances and mixtures, including a system to facilitate and 
promote the development of standard data format and analysis and 
consistent testing procedures. Through FOSTTA, the CIMP focuses on 
EPA's chemical program and works to develop a more coordinated effort 
involving federal, state, and tribal agencies. P2 promotes the 
prevention ethic across society, helping to integrate P2 into 
mainstream environmental activities at the federal level and among the 
states and tribes. TAP concentrates on chemical and prevention issues 
that are most relevant to the tribes, including lead control and 
abatement, tribal traditional/subsistence lifeways, and hazard 
communications and outreach. FOSTTA's vision is to focus on major 
policy-level issues of importance to states and tribes, recruit more 
senior state and tribal leaders, increase outreach to all 50 states and 
some 560 federally recognized tribes, and vigorously seek ways to 
engage the states and tribes in ongoing substantive discussions on 
complex and oftentimes controversial environmental issues.
     In January 2002, the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS), 
in partnership with the National Tribal Environmental Council (NTEC), 
was awarded the new FOSTTA cooperative agreement. ECOS, NTEC, and EPA's 
Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) are co-sponsoring the 
meetings. As part of a cooperative agreement, ECOS and NTEC facilitate 
ongoing efforts of the state and tribal leaders and OPPT to increase 
understanding and improve collaboration on toxic chemicals and 
pollution prevention issues, and to continue a dialogue on how Federal 
environmental programs can best be implemented among the states, 
tribes, and EPA.
