The Senate’s passage of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act brings the United States one step closer to having an effective, science-based chemical regulatory system that gives consumers confidence in the safety of the products they buy.

“For nearly a decade the Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA) has testified in support of strengthening the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and has offered input on the best way to modernize TSCA,” said Chris Cathcart, President and CEO of CSPA. “We are looking forward to working with the Senate and House bill authors to reconcile the two bills into legislation that has the support of a wide range of stakeholders and will be signed by President Obama.”
