Reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act could happen this year, with two Senate bills expected. "All parties acknowledge that bipartisan support is necessary if movement on TSCA modernization is to be achieved," said Mike Walls, vice president of regulatory and technical affairs at the American Chemistry Council. "Everyone also agrees that there is a real need to modify TSCA in order to regain public confidence in our chemical regulatory system. Therefore, we at ACC believe that we are at an important crossroads on TSCA reform."
