Real chemicals policy reform must protect our health

We are asking Congress to strengthen our weak chemicals laws so that toxic heavy metals, hormone disrupting chemicals, and toxic flame retardants don't end up in the products we use in our homes.

The Chemical Safety Improvement Act does not go far enough to protect the health of vulnerable people like children, pregnant women, and communities overburdened by pollution. Join us in calling on Congress to strengthen this bill so that it protects our health.

The Chemical Safety Improvement Act should:

1. Ensure that it explicitly protects vulnerable populations like pregnant women, heavily impacted communities and children;

2. Preserve state ability to regulate toxic chemicals;

3. Take fast action on the worst chemicals;

4. Make timelines for action clear in the bill;

5. Ensure chemicals have adequate information before they are prioritized.
