Congress passed a chemical reform bill 39 years ago in 1976 called the Toxic Substance Control Act. Since then, thousands of chemicals have been introduced without being tested for safety. Many of these chemicals end up in products that we use everyday in our homes and on our children. What’s more is that these chemical manufacturers can keep these toxic ingredients hidden from consumers.
Yesterday Senators Udall and Vitter’s proposed a “reform” bill that would not require chemicals to be evaluated and proven safe before being sold. Instead of an honest “reform” to the inadequate safety standards it would make our chemical safety system even weaker.
Healthy Child Healthy World is asking our supporters to take action with the Environmental Working Group and oppose the Udall-Vitter bill.
