    View Author June 2015

    On June 23, 2015, by a vote of 398-1, the US House of Representatives (House) overwhelmingly approved HR 2576, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, a landmark bill that would significantly amend the decades-old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

    The legislation approved by the full House is slightly different from the version voted on by the House Energy & Commerce Committee on June 3. As approved by the House, HR 2576 makes a number of substantive changes to the existing TSCA law.
