TSCA Advocacy Day

Event Description

The Toy Industry Association (TIA) was pleased to hold an advocacy day on April 13th dedicated to seeing that Congress passes Toxic Substance Reform Act (TSCA) reform this year. The event included meetings on Capitol Hill as well as at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Members from coast to coast are invited to join TIA representatives and encourage key policymakers to collaborate, finalize legislation and send a final bill to President Obama as soon as possible so that it can be signed into law.

Looking Back

April 18, 2016 | On April 13th, Toy Industry Association (TIA) representatives and several TIA members convened with government officials in Washington, D.C. to discuss the passage of Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform legislation.

TSCA has not been substantially updated since 1976. Two TSCA reform bills were passed respectively by the House of Representatives and the Senate in 2015. TIA led last week’s TSCA Advocacy Day to encourage key policymakers to collaborate, finalize legislation and propose a joint bill to President Obama which he can sign into a federal law before he leaves office next year.
