One of the primary goals of the JPMA DC Office over the past several years has been to advocate for a modernized Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) that ensures the safe use of chemicals, encourages the development of new products, and protects American jobs and public health.
Working closely with our allies from the American Alliance for Innovation (AAI) and through the help of our members, today we are able to celebrate this tremendous achievement and applaud the first Congress in 40 years to reform our nation's primary chemical management law. This effort could not have been accomplished without the tireless work our manufacturing and Association partners, Congressional staff, and your support.
Improving the regulation of chemicals used in commerce has a significant impact on our industry from the suppliers we use, the products we make, to the services we provide, and the millions of workers we represent in the juvenile industry. Enactment of a reformedTSCA creates a more predictable regulatory environment and will greatly help in future efforts with individual states and counties.
