Healthy States: Protecting Families from Toxic Chemicals While Congress Lags Behind
Last updated: 12/30/2011

A new report from SAFER States and the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition shows that states aren’t waiting for Congress to take action on toxic chemicals—they are taking matters into their own hands.

Titled Healthy States: Protecting Families From Toxic Chemicals While Congress Lags Behind, the new report asserts that three factors are driving state legislators to take action on toxic chemicals:

  • Mounting scientific evidence that exposure to certain chemicals is harming our nation’s health
  • Loud public outcry against what are viewed as chemical intruders in the family home
  • Deep frustration that Congress refuses to hold industry accountable for proving chemicals in products are safe before they arrive on store shelves.
