WASHINGTON—Tiernan Sittenfeld, LCV Senior Vice President for Government Affairs, released the following statement in response to today’s hearing on S. 847, the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011:

“We applaud Chairman Lautenberg and the other members of the Environment & Public Works Committee who spoke so powerfully at today’s hearing on the Safe Chemicals Act on the urgent need to enact chemical policy reform. With tens of thousands of chemicals going unregulated, it's long past time to reform the woefully out of date and inadequate Toxic Substances Control Act in order to protect families in their homes and workers on the job.  Today’s hearing was an important step in the right direction, and we urge the committee to swiftly pass this bill in a bipartisan fashion.”
