“The current law is broadly considered ineffective at regulating many chemicals that have entered the marketplace in the last several decades. Since 1976, scientists’ understanding of chemicals and their impacts have increased dramatically. This legislation will provide a clearer framework for regulating the safety of toxic chemicals in everyday products for the protection of consumers. This bipartisan effort will strengthen one of our nation’s important environmental statutes that has not been updated in 40 years.”
