U.S. House of Representatives Approves TSCA Reform

(Posted 6/23/15)


Washington 6/23/15 Earlier this evening the U.S. House voted to approve a major modernization of the Toxic Substances Act (TSCA) which has served the nation for more than three decades.  H.R. 2576, a bipartisan bill known as the "TSCA Modernization Act of 2015" cleared the floor with tremendous support from both Republicans and Democrats.    The bill holds the new promise of modernizing the nation's primary toxic management law which has been for many years criticized by both industry and environmental interest as being outmoded. 


Speaking from Washington following the passage of the measure, Cal Dooley, President of the American Chemistry Council said, "Today marks a pivotal moment in the years-long effort to reform TSCA. By approving H.R. 2576, the 'TSCA Modernization Act of 2015,' with tremendous support from both sides of the aisle, the House has sent a clear message that now is the time to update TSCA. We commend the House for what has been an unwavering commitment to this important national issue. In particular ACC appreciates the leadership of Chairman Upton, Ranking Member Pallone, Subcommittee Chairman Shimkus and Subcommittee Ranking Member Tonko."


Focus now shifts to the Senate as calls go out to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to swiftly bring the Senate bipartisan version of TSCA modernization to a floor vote.  The Senate bill S. 697, named in memory of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg who before his death championed a similar bill in the previous congress, is entitled the "Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act."  


CICC has supported modernization for years; and in anticipation of House action, our members made their support for the legislation know by contacting their Members of Congress via e-mail, telephone, and face-to-face encounters.  CICC extends thanks to our members for their extra efforts and reminds everyone that the job isn't over yet.

         Make sure chemicals are safe for intended use; make sure safety decisions are made expeditiously; prioritize chemicals for evaluation so those with the greatest need get attention first; utilize all reliable information; and make safety information public while protecting intellectual property;


         Ensure confidence in safety regulations - by basing decisions on a strong scientific framework that uses modern technology, proven safety testing methods and high-quality data;


         Enable innovation in American chemistry by evaluating safety information, requiring testing to fill any information gaps and protecting intellectual property.
