BlueGreen Alliance Director of Chemicals, Public Health and Green Chemistry Charlotte Brody testified before the joint meeting of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and the Subcommittee on Superfund, Toxics, and Environmental Health to urge the passage of the Safe Chemicals Act.
