The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has issued the following statement from Ernie Rosenberg, President & CEO, regarding the introduction of the “Chemical Safety Improvement Act”:

“The introduction of bipartisan legislation to strengthen the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) represents a breakthrough for modernizing chemical regulation in the United States. Senators Lautenberg and Vitter deserve great credit for their commitment to move this measure forward.
"ACI and our member company cleaning product manufacturers and suppliers have been pressing for common sense, bipartisan legislation to strengthen the law and reassert American leadership on chemical management.
"We know that there are still many details to work through and much language to review. But getting to this stage raises the hope that TSCA can be updated in a way that truly protects consumers and allows manufacturers to innovate and produce increasingly sustainable products for many years to come.”
