Bill to WEAKEN toxic chemical regulation introduced in the Senate
BREAKING: Bill to WEAKEN toxic chemical regulation introduced in the Senate.
We need to act fast.
Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and David Vitter (R-La.) introduced the chemical industry’s dream bill this week.
If passed, companies will continue to put endocrine disruptors and other chemicals that we know are harmful, including BPA and fire retardants, into products that we use every single day – with little to no regulation. It will make an already weak chemical safety system even weaker.
We’re ready to wage all-out war on the chemical industry, but we can’t do it without you. Can you rush a donation to help EWG raise $20,000 before tonight so we can shut down this atrocious bill for good?
The chemical industry has already spent $190 million on lobbying over the past three years to get a bill like this together. In fact, Cal Dooley, head of the chemical industry’s leading trade association, recently bragged to The New York Times that this terrible bill would have 70 votes by the time it was introduced. That’s 70 votes too many.
We at EWG are ready to fight for real chemical safety reform – but we need your immediate support to stand up to industry’s millions. Rush your donation to EWG right now: We must raise $20,000 by tonight!
Thank you for your help. Together, we can make real and lasting change a reality.
