U.S. House bill fails to protect from chemicals

March 12, 2014

We need your help. Last week the House of Representatives began to consider the Chemicals and Commerce Act that seeks to reform how we regulate chemicals in the U.S. Unfortunately, the new bill does very little to protect our communities from exposure to toxic chemicals.

This woefully inadequate bill would:

  • Allow known "bad actor" chemicals like lead, asbestos, formaldehyde, and chromium to remain on the market and in our communities;
  • Provide very limited health and safety information on chemicals;
  • Fail to ensure protections for the most vulnerable, like pregnant women, children, workers, and communities surrounded by polluting facilities; and
  • Roll back existing state regulations and prevent new laws from being enacted.

We need you to tell Congress today that you won't support phony reform -- only real, health-protective reform. Together we can help stop this bill, but only if you take action today.
