TSCA Is Good for Manufacturers, Good for Americans

Manufacturers Call on Congress to Pass Bill and Get to White House

Washington, D.C., May 18, 2016 – National Association of Manufacturers Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued the following statement after congressional leaders announced a plan to move forward on Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform legislation:

“This deal is a breakthrough that combines the strongest elements of the House and Senate bills, benefiting both manufacturers and consumers and eliminating regulatory uncertainty. Manufacturers have been calling for TSCA reform for years. As innovation and technology have propelled manufacturing into the 21st century, this outdated law not only has created bureaucratic burdens, but it also fails to reflect the state of current, modern manufacturing.

This is a win for everyone, including manufacturers, enabling further improvement of manufactured products and economic growth and opportunities. Manufacturers call on Congress to get this critical reform to the president’s desk without further delay.”
