BlueGreen Alliance Statement on the Chemical Safety Improvement Act

We see the recent introduction of the bipartisan Chemical Safety Improvement Act as an opportunity to advance much needed reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act if the bill is amended to address some key concerns.

The BlueGreen Alliance is a national partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations dedicated to expanding the number and quality of jobs in the clean economy. The 15 million members of our partner organizations include the men and women who manufacture chemicals and the workers who use those chemicals to process food; make paper; clean office buildings, schools and hospitals; and produce cars and trucks.

We see the recent introduction of the bipartisan Chemical Safety Improvement Act as an opportunity to advance much needed reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act if the bill is amended to address some key concerns. Recognizing that considerable room for additional clarification and strengthening of this bill exists beyond these key concerns, the BlueGreen Alliance looks forward to a sincere engagement with all stakeholders to improve upon this legislative beginning and work toward a safer, greener and growing economy.
