Chemical and Products Industries Respond to 'Safe Chemicals' Bill
New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg today introduced the Safe Chemicals Act, which is intended to enhance the federal regulation of chemicals. Representing the leading companies in the chemical business and consumer products industries, 16 associations issued the following statement:
"Protecting public health by ensuring the safety of chemicals and the products they go into is a top priority for our industries. This should be a priority for any federal chemical regulatory reform effort as well. We agree with Senator Lautenberg that it is time to modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), and have been working with Congress, the administration and stakeholders to enhance the way chemicals are managed.
