WASHINGTON, DC – League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released this statement on today’s introduction of the Safe Chemicals Act of 2013, which already has an impressive showing of support by 29 co-sponsors: 

“Our nation’s primary chemical law is so flawed that many products we use every day contain unregulated chemicals that pose a major risk to public health. It’s time our laws catch up to the science linking these chemicals to growing incidences of health problems, including childhood cancers, infertility, and learning disabilities. Senators Lautenberg and Gillibrand have taken a major step forward by introducing this bill, and we hope for quick action on this legislation.”
