Bills Introduced – 03-10-15

The Senate was in town yesterday and there was a proforma session in the House (most everyone was home working in their districts) so there were only 32 bills introduced yesterday. There was only one that would be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 697 A bill to amend the Toxic Substances Control Act to reauthorize and modernize that Act, and for other purposes. Sen. Udall, Tom [D-NM]

This bill was introduced with much fanfare in the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee yesterday. It is being touted as a bipartisan (8 Democrat and 9 Republican cosponsors) update to the TSCA program. Just remember that a similar bipartisan bill (S 1009) was introduced last session and it died in the same committee. This will almost certainly be a controversial bill with people sniping at it from all sides.
