Clare has worked to affect legislation and regulation at the federal level for various trade associations including those representing the scrap recycling industry, large industrial users of electricity and natural gas, and manufacturers of advanced ceramics. She has also represented trade associations and companies at the state and local levels.
While representing the scrap recycling industry, Clare lobbied to enact the Superfund Recycling Equity Act of 1999. The passage of this law provided the scrap recycling industry with a valid defense to Superfund liability, provided companies could demonstrate they took certain steps before shipping recyclable material to a consuming facility.
