ABSTRACT
The article presents highlights of the draft of the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (CSIA), which offers an approach to Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform in the U.S. The bill was introduced by senators David Vitter and the late Frank Lautenberg in May 2013 and met with broad stakeholder approval. However, there is a dispute over the CSIA's preemption provisions, the standard safety applicable in EPA's determinations of risk, and the lack of deadlines for the agency's actions.
