Today Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman released the following statement on the Republican draft bill to amend the Toxic Substances Control Act:
"I could not support the Republican draft in its current form. It would weaken current law and endanger public health. However, bipartisan discussions have started, and I'm hopeful that the draft can be significantly modified to provide the kind of reform that American families want. It will be a lot of work, but I am willing to engage with the proponents of this legislation to determine if we can craft legislation that will protect public health and the environment while ensuring workability for industry."
