The bipartisan compromise reached by lawmakers to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act will benefit industry by increasing public confidence in chemical safety, according to American Chemistry Council President and CEO Cal Dooley. "Our industry was motivated to secure reform because we were seeing an increasing decline in the public's confidence in EPA's assessment of chemicals and ensuring they were safe in the marketplace. What we think we've done is achieve a process where industry is providing more information, but also continue to bring new innovations and new products to the market," Dooley said.
