Rule for Consideration of HR 2576 – TSCA Reform

Last night the House Rules Committee finished their rule for the consideration of the Senate amendment to HR 2576, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015. The House amendment that I described Saturday was further amended and will be offered as an amendment to the Senate amendment on the House floor, perhaps as soon as today. There will be one hour of debate and the vote will be held without further amendment.

The amendment made last night was a four-page technical correction to the language of the amendment agreed to by the unofficial conferees. That amendment is included in the Rules Committee report on the Senate amendment to HR 2576.

The bill will almost certainly pass with at least some bipartisan support, as all of the major chemical safety players in the House and Senate have agreed to this new language.
