Bethesda, Maryland -- The US Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) said that it has advised the US Senate to find a bipartisan solution to the reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
The association has conveyed its message to a number of Senators in both the Democrat and Republican parties. The meetings were part of an effort by American Alliance for Innovation (AAI) to educate lawmakers about the importance of legislation keeping pace with advances in science and technology.
ASC emphasised in a 2 Feb news release the complexity of TSCA will require all concerned parties find common ground in modernising legislation. It added that it is critical to do this in order to preempt efforts by states and local municipalities to introduce their own chemical regulatory efforts.
"ASC is continuing its commitment to its members to get the word out to legislators about the importance of establishing a modernised TSCA program," said Mark Collatz, ASC's director of Government Relations.
