Chemicals in Commerce Act

Background Documents and Information:

The subcommittee is continuing its work to reform and improve the decades-old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Chairman Shimkus unveiled a draft of the Chemicals in Commerce Act after the subcommittee’s extensive review of the current law. The draft legislation reforms the law to ensure a transparent, workable, and risk-based process for chemical review and regulation. The subcommittee reviewed an initial draft of the legislation in March, and members have since continued to work together on a bipartisan basis to find common ground. Next week, the subcommittee will review a revised draft of the legislation.
