Confronting Toxics

The U.S. has at long last updated the nation's chemical policy, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), by enacting the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. Viewed from the health perspective, the Lautenberg Chemical Act makes some improvements to our outdated and ineffective current system of regulating toxic chemicals. However, substantially more work will be needed in order to truly protect the health of all communities.
