Manufacturers Ready for TSCA Reform

House Vote Signals Bipartisan Progress and Certainty for Manufacturers

Washington, D.C., June 23, 2015 – The National Association of Manufacturers Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg issued the following statement after the House overwhelmingly passed H.R. 2576, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015:  

“It is past time for TSCA reform, and this House vote is an example that compromise is still possible from our leaders in Congress. Manufacturers have long been vocal advocates for these critical reforms that strengthen and improve an outdated environmental statute. This is a win-win situation, for the American public who deserves safe and sustainable products and for manufacturers who need greater regulatory certainty and the continued ability to make better products while growing the economy and creating jobs.”
