Congressman Ted Lieu to Headline TRAA’s Monthly Zoom Meeting on Wednesday, January 12 at 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time

Congressman Ted Lieu is a national leader and a strong advocate for transitioning the two South Bay refineries that use massive amounts of highly toxic hydrogen fluoride (HF) to one of the modern, vastly safer, commercially available alternatives.

Congressman Ted Lieu’s 33rd Congressional District stretches across much of western Los Angeles County. It is home to South Bay cities where constituents are at high risk from a major accidental release of HF from either the Torrance Refining Company or the Valero Refinery in Wilmington: Rancho Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, and part of the city of Torrance.
