The American Nurses Association (ANA) applauds the introduction of legislation to bring much needed reform to our nation’s chemical policy. "The Toxic Chemicals Safety Act of 2010" (H.R. 5820), introduced by Congressmen Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Henry Waxman (D-CA), would make much needed changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), such as requiring publicly available safety and health data on chemicals, and putting the burden on the industry to prove that chemicals are safe in order stay on the market. In April, a similar bill was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) called the "Safe Chemicals Act of 2010."
