Senator Frank Lautenberg Introduces "Safe Chemicals Act of 2011"!By Ali Geering-Kline
“The average American has more than 200 industrial chemicals in their body, including dozens linked to cancer and other health problems. The shocking truth is that the current law does not require tests to ensure chemicals used in everyday household products are safe.”
-Senator Frank R. Lautenberg
Today, Senator Lautenberg introduced updated legislation to modernize the “Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976” (TSCA) –the outdated chemical regulation currently in place. Lautenberg’s new “Safe Chemicals Act of 2011” seeks to require – for the first time – that chemical manufacturers demonstrate the safety of industrial chemicals used in everyday household products.
