After 40 years of inaction, Congress is almost done updating our broken federal chemical regulations. But the big question is: will the new law be any better than the old one?
The Senate and House have both passed bills updating the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the law of the land for regulating which chemicals can and cannot be used in everyday consumer products. They’re in the process of combining the two bills; then it will head to the President’s desk.
TSCA fails miserably on protecting us from toxic chemicals in everything from sippy cups to saucepans. For years, health activists like you have been demanding our lawmakers update these toothless regulations.
Our lawmakers are poised to take action – make sure they know you’re watching and you want adequate protections from toxic chemicals linked to breast cancer.
