ASC Members Urge Congressional Action on TSCA Reform

Taking immediate congressional action on Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform was the critical message The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) and its members brought to Capitol Hill during the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) 2014 Manufacturing Summit, which took place June 11-12 in Washington, D.C. ASC, along with dozens of associations and their members, discussed a range of issues and concerns impacting U.S. manufacturing with members of the Senate, the House of Representatives, and key congressional staff.

In addition, attendees were able to hear about some of the Obama Administration’s and Congress’ initiatives to improve U.S. manufacturing prospects during presentations by Vice President Joseph Biden, Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.), and the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

“Getting something done on TSCA reform in the 114th Congress is at a critical juncture,” said Mark Collatz, ASC’s director of Regulatory Affairs. “By bringing those involved in day-to-day operations to tell their stories, we hope our elected officials will better understand just how important it is to get a TSCA reform bill passed now.”
