TSCA Reform Bill Passes US Senate by Voice Vote

On December 18th, a bipartisan group of senators celebrated victory after years of negotiations over a major chemical safety bill that passed the Senate Thursday night. Sens. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and David Vitter (R-La.) led the effort to gain passage on the Senate floor for the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, named after the late New Jersey Democratic senator who led the effort before his 2013 death that makes major changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976.  The House of Representatives passed similar legislation on June 23, 2015.  As the two bills differ, a Conference Committee will meet to deliberate and provide final language.  It is hoped that negotiations will start during the Christmas break with a final product final product ready for votes in both chambers early next year.
