Bob Richard, Labelmaster Vice President of Regulatory Affairs quoted "Before you go and run a test … give industry a chance to comment on the test methodologies." "What's worrisome to me is that a government agency develops a test method, carries out the test, publishes the results, and then I go and turn on TV one night and there's George Stephanopoulos talking about burning [air cargo].
