The BlueGreen Alliance, a partnership of U.S. labor and environmental groups representing nearly 16 million members and supporters building a cleaner, fairer and more competitive American economy, has worked for many years to support reform of our nation’s outdated chemical policies. While the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, S. 697, aims to provide this reform and we applaud this latest effort at finding a bi-partisan solution to the antiquated and health-damaging current federal law regulating chemicals—the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA)—we do not support S. 697 because this new legislation will not protect workers, families and children from toxic chemicals.
