Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy will hold a hearing on S. 1009

On Wednesday, November 13, the Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy will hold a hearing on “S. 1009 – The Chemical Safety Improvement Act.” 

The subcommittee has held three hearings in the 113th Congress examining the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) including practical effects of its regulatory implementation. 

Next week, members will begin examining efforts to reform the statute with a review of S. 1009, the Chemical Safety Improvement Act, bipartisan legislation authored by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) and the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). 

As part of the ongoing effort to improve chemical safety regulation, the subcommittee will take a thoughtful look at the proposed Senate bill and how it addresses reform of the program. 

The Majority Memorandum and witness list is available here. Witness testimony will also be posted at the same link when available.
