The Environmental Working Group (www.ewg.org) has huge news. The toxics reform bill, H.R. 5820, the Kid-Safe Chemicals Petition Toxic Chemicals Safety Act, has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Chairmen Waxman (CA-30) and Rush (IL-01). Toxics reform is now moving through both houses of Congress. It has never been more important for Congress to know that we want the strongest and most effective toxics bill possible — we need companies to prove that chemicals are safe before they hit our supermarket shelves.
95,000 EWG supporters have already called on Congress to enact change — and we’ve got Washington’s attention. Now, in this crucial moment of introduction, we need to reach 100,000 signatures to make sure our legislators make this bill strong and effective.
