TSCA Chemical Reform Hearing Going on Now (10:00 am EST)

As I noted a couple of days ago, the US Senate is holding a hearing today on TSCA reform.  Technically, the Subcommittee on Superfund, Toxics and Environmental Health is holding the hearing, which is called "Assessing the Effectiveness of US Chemical Safety Laws" and features some key players in the ongoing discussions to modernize the 34 year old law.
