IPC Commends U.S. Senate on Passage of Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act Statement from John Mitchell, IPC President and CEO

Dec 20, 2015

On behalf of IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® and an estimated 800,000 people employed in our 2,200 U.S. member facilities, we commend the U.S. Senate for passing the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (S. 697).

IPC appreciates the bipartisan leadership of U.S. Senators David Vitter (R-La.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.) for sponsoring this legislation to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, which needs to be modernized to reflect 21st century realities. A strong, cost-effective, science-based federal chemical regulatory program is important to our members, who use chemicals to manufacture electronics for the nation’s defense, aerospace, automotive, consumer and other industries. S. 697 includes sensible, balanced provisions for modernizing the United States’ outdated chemical regulatory program to help promote innovation and growth within our economy. The Senate’s recognition of the need to modernize environmental rule-making is a big step in the right direction.

We look forward to working with House and Senate members as this bill goes to conference with the House, and various issues are resolved.
