House Hearing on TSCA Chemical Control March 4th
The House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection has announced it will hold a hearing on “TSCA And Persistent, Bioaccumulative, And Toxic Chemicals: Examining Domestic And International Actions.”
The hearing is scheduled for next Thursday March 4.
As of this writing, no witnesses had been identified. I will update as soon as I know.
It is highly likely that a TSCA reform bill will be introduced very shortly. I believe that whatever window of opportunity that occurs in March when Senator Lautenberg is healthy enough to do so, he will introduce the bill in the Senate, with the House following suit with a mirror bill.
