NACD Applauds Bi-Partisan Introduction Of Senate Bill To Modernize The Toxic Substances Control Act

WASHINGTON, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, a diverse group of Senators from both sides of the aisle introduced the Chemical Safety Improvement Act of 2013, a bill to modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Led by Senators Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and David Vitter (R-LA), the bill had an additional seven Republicans and seven Democrats as original co-sponsors.  The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) applauds their efforts to come together on producing a bipartisan agreement to address human health and the environment.


"This bipartisan bill is an important step in modernizing the way we assess the safety of chemicals, with members of both parties having rolled up their sleeves to produce collective language. While there is still much to review, we are hopeful that the provisions of the bill will enhance safety, while maintaining America's ability to compete in today's global marketplace," stated Chris Jahn, President, National Association of Chemical Distributors.

NACD and others in the industry have provided input to many of the co-sponsors and the Environment and Public Works Committee during stakeholder dialogue meetings and through numerous hearings since 2008.

NACD and its over 400 member companies are vital to the chemical supply chain providing products to over 750,000 end users. They make a delivery every seven seconds while maintaining a safety record that is more than twice as good as all manufacturing combined. NACD members are leaders in health, safety, security, and environmental performance through implementation of Responsible Distribution, a third-party verified management practice established in 1991 as a condition of membership.
