WASHINGTON (May 23, 2016) – After months of intense negotiations, House and Senate leadership have agreed on final legislation to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The House Rules Committee will act on the legislation on Monday, May 23, 2016, and a vote by the full House is expected as early as Tuesday, May 24, 2016. In response, American Chemistry Council (ACC) President and CEO Cal Dooley issued the following statement:

“The final legislation released today is a major win for America’s economy and American consumers. It is a true compromise that balances the interests of multiple stakeholders and has an almost-unprecedented level of bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. We look forward to a speedy vote in the House and quick action in the Senate. After years of inaction, we are confident 2016 will be the year U.S. chemical regulation steps into the 21st century.”
