WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman issued the following statement on Senate passage of The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, legislation to modernize our nation’s outdated chemical safety law.
“This legislation will improve public confidence in the safety of chemicals, create regulatory certainty for business and more uniform protections for American families. It allows us to take advantage of advances in technology and research to improve safety for consumers and the environment. This legislation provides a smart, balanced approach to improving chemical safety,” Boozman said.
As a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, Boozman worked to overhaul the ineffective Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and reform chemical safety law as a cosponsor of the The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act.
