  • In an increasingly rare bipartisan move, Congress approved a major revision of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and sent H.R. 2576 to the Oval Office for signature. President Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act into law on June 22, 2016. TSCA has not undergone a thorough update since its enactment 40 years ago.
