American Cleaning Institute Statement –
U.S. Senate Passage of Chemical Safety Legislation

Washington, DC, June 8, 2016 – The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) released the following statement from Ernie Rosenberg, ACI President & CEO, on the U.S. Senate’s passage of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which would modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA):

"The Senate’s passage of this legislation paves the way for modernizing our outdated chemical safety regulations. This is an exceptional bipartisan achievement in a time otherwise marked by extreme partisanship. We greatly appreciate the hard work done by so many leaders in the Senate on both sides of the aisle to get this legislation passed.

"The American Cleaning Institute was happy to be able to contribute to the passage of the first update to TSCA in 40 years.

"This bill – the top legislative priority for ACI and our members – will further enable our industry’s ongoing work to develop and innovate more sustainable cleaning products.

"As the Environmental Protection Agency prepares to implement the new law, ACI will be thoroughly engaged in the regulatory process on behalf of our member companies."
