Toxic Free Kids

Legislation surrounding dangerous chemicals used in children’s products would appropriate almost $1.4 million to increase available information, enhance consumer awareness, and give product manufacturers incentives to reduce problem chemicals in consumer products. The bill would require manufacturers to disclose the use of “priority chemicals” in children’s products so consumers can make informed decisions. While some large manufacturers of children’s products have expressed concern, the bill enjoys broad support from children, family, and consumer protections groups. The bill passed through the Commerce Committee this week, and heads now to the Finance Committee. (S.F. 1099)
