Washington, DC – Today, President Obama signed historic legislation that modernizes the 40-year-old Toxic Substances Control Act. This new law will address longstanding concerns about chemical safety and will help protect wildlife and the American people for years to come.
Collin O’Mara, president and chief executive officer of the National Wildlife Federation, said in response:
“This legislation improves the protections for the health of both the public and the nation’s wildlife, and is a landmark continuation of America’s legacy of environmental protection. It could not have become a reality without strong bipartisan leadership from Republicans and Democrats in Congress and President Obama. This law establishes a transparent regulatory process for businesses and industry leaders while simultaneously ensuring the safety of Americans and wildlife habitats that will no longer be exposed to potentially dangerous chemicals.”
