US Senate and House of Repre­sen­ta­tives have come to agreement on legis­lation on the 40-year-old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) that will revamp the laws overseeing toxic chemicals, and allowing around 64,000 chemicals to be regulated for the first time.  As a law firm handling products liability cases and repre­senting people afflicted with asbestos, tobacco and chemical caused diseases, we have followed this legis­lation.  The original “reform” bill actually undercut the rights of consumers and workers exposed to dangerous chemicals.  Hard work by many improved the legis­lation but did not make it all it could have been.

There is still work to be done to protect consumers from dangerous and toxic chemicals, but this is a step in the right direction.
