N.J. Senator Introduces Bill To Overhaul U.S. Toxic Chemical Regulatory Apparatus

April 15, 2010: 04:26 AM EST
New Jersey Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D) has introduced a bill to revamp the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, which the legislator calls “an antiquated law that in its current state, leaves Americans at risk of exposure to toxic chemicals.” Lautenberg’s Safe Chemicals Act of 2010 would protect the health of families and the environment, according to the lawmaker, who chairs the Subcommittee on Superfund, Toxics and Environmental Health. The legislation would require safety testing of all industrial chemicals, and require the industry to prove that chemicals are safe to keep on the market. It would also give the Environmental Protection Agency more power to regulate the use of dangerous chemicals and require manufacturers to submit information proving the safety of every chemical in production and any new chemical seeking to enter the market.
