From Healthy Child Health World:

Recently, Governor Schwarzenegger announced a partnership between the State of California and Denmark to cooperate in the construction of a new public endeavor to protect consumers against harmful chemical exposure.

California is currently developing a program under last year's landmark Green Chemistry Initiative (in September, 2008) with the lofty yet vital objective of changing the way our society manufactures, produces, and uses industrial chemicals for commerce. The overarching goal is not simply to discourage the use of hazardous chemicals and avoid the toxic waste they produce, but to reinvent the proverbial wheel.

The program would also address the thousands upon thousands of industrial chemicals that were grandfathered into the current (and very broken) chemical regulatory system in 1976, called the Toxic Substances Control Act.
