Bipartisan Chemical Safety Bill One Step Closer to Becoming Law

"For too long, the Toxic Substances Control Act has allowed chemicals that we all know are unsafe to pollute our waters and harm our wildlife."

This evening, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation reforming the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the major law to protect people and the environment from harmful chemicals.  Passage of this bill by the full House sets the stage for these critical chemical safety protections to be revised for the first time in 39 years. The Senate now must take up its version that passed the Environment and Public Works Committee in April.     
Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of National Wildlife Federation, said today:

"For too long, the Toxic Substances Control Act has allowed chemicals that we all know are unsafe to pollute our waters and harm our wildlife and public health. This bill represents areas of bipartisan common ground and we’ll keep working with Congress to finalize legislation that will result in better protections for human health, our natural resources, and fish and wildlife from the most harmful toxic chemicals we encounter every day."
