Senate Passes House Version of HR 2576 – TSCA Reform

Yesterday the Senate passed the revised House version of HR 2576, the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (TSCA reform) by a voice vote. The vote was preceded by 45 minutes of ‘debate’ which was mainly congratulatory speechifying in support of the bill. The President is expected to sign the bill.

Now we just have to wait on the EPA to re-write the regulations enforcing the program. That will almost certainly be done under the next administration. It will be interesting to see if this is even mentioned on the 2016 Campaign trail.
