House lawmakers have begun debate on proposed changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act as various stakeholders express their positions on the measure. Thursday's hearing was "an important step to ensure members of Congress understand the important role that TSCA has played in the management of chemicals in commerce, and the need to modernize the law to better reflect today's science and meet today's needs," said American Chemistry Council President and CEO Cal Dooley. "TSCA has allowed the U.S. to lead the world in chemical innovation. ... Any amendments to TSCA must preserve the time frames and flexibility that allow this innovation to continue," said Beth Bosley, president of Boron Specialties.
