Bills Introduced – 05-26-15

Both the House and Senate met in pro forma sessions yesterday while the vast majority of congresscritters were in their home states on a very extended Memorial Day weekend. Even so there were four bills introduced in the House (the Senate does not allow bill introductions during pro forma sessions). One of those bills may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 2576 To modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act, and for other purposes. Rep. Shimkus, John [R-IL-15]

This is supposed to be the House version of bipartisan TSCA reform. It will probably not get much mention in this blog. The bill is too complex and only tangentially touches on the aspects of chemical safety that I typically cover in this blog.
