<> House Clears Monumental Update to Chemical Safety Laws - The House of Representatives today (5/24/16) passed a landmark bicameral, bipartisan overhaul of our chemical safety standards -- the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act passed the House by a vote of 403 to 12 -- for over three years, the committee has examined the Toxic Substances Control Act and has conducted nine hearings examining all aspects of the laws shortcomings -- the bill passed is the product of months of bipartisan House and Senate negotiations.
