Safe Chemicals Act Announced   1 comment

I’ve been remiss in not publicizing the announcement of the Safe Chemicals Act of 2010, which would work to close the loopholes in TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act) that allow thousands of new chemicals to be developed and put into use by the public without safety testing. I haven’t read the full text of the new bill yet, but considering how strongly I feel that the Precautionary Principle needs to be codified to reduce our exposures to thousands of chemicals that contribute to health problems, and the initial support that the bill is receiving from organizations that I trust like Environmental Working Group, I think that this is probably something worth supporting. When I find the time I’ll be reading the text and trying to stay up-to-date on its progress through both House and Senate. For now if you want to read the text, go to Senator Lautenberg’s press announcement for the summary and links.
