Feb. 1 US: Legislators in 30 States Announce Toxic Chemical Bills

From Sustainable

Increasing rates of chronic diseases linked to toxic chemical exposure, including cancer, asthma, and infertility, has created urgency in state capitols to enact policies to get harmful chemicals off the market, the Coalition said.

Despite overwhelming public support for stronger laws on toxic chemicals, Congress has heeded the aggressive opposition of chemical industry lobbyists rather than the support of the American electorate and failed to pass Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform legislation three times in the last six years.
