Safe Chemicals Act

The following is from the Safer Chemicals Healthy Families website:

The 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is out of date and ineffective at protecting the public from chemicals that have been linked to cancer, learning disabilities, asthma, reproductive problems, and other serious diseases. Signaling their clear intention to protect families from toxic chemicals linked to serious health problems, Senators Frank Lautenberg, Barbara Boxer, Amy Klobuchar, Charles Schumer and others introduced Senate Bill S.487, the "Safe Chemicals Act" to upgrade America’s outdated system for managing chemical safety.  For more information, visit http://www.saferchemicals.org/safe-chemicals-act/index.html
