Demand Real Chemical Safety Rules!
A bill the US Senate is now considering would leave American families unprotected from toxic chemicals.
Our communities deserve reform of federal chemical safety laws that will truly work for our families. But the petrochemical industry’s powerful fat cats couldn’t be happier about the bill the Senate is considering, the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (CSIA).
The petrochemical industry representatives are the same people who say that pesticides are safe on our children’s food, hormone-altering chemicals are harmless, toxic flame-retardant chemicals belong in items that babies crawl on, and a little asbestos never hurt anyone.
The truth is, the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (CSIA), as drafted, would fail to protect children’s health. In fact, the bill actually takes steps backwards that could invalidate critical health protections that CEH has won for children and families.
