Safer Chemistry Bill

I’ve recently been receiving emails in the form below.

My reply is that yes, I have just signed on as a cosponsor.

I’m writing to ask you to please take a stand to protect our health from toxic chemicals by cosponsoring An Act for Healthy Families and Businesses through Safer Chemistry, filed by Representative Jay Kaufman & Senator Katherine Clark.

We all know someone living with cancer, asthma, learning disabilities, birth defects, or other devastating health problems linked to toxic chemicals. Massachusetts can protect the health of citizens and save in health care costs by passing legislation that would keep replace toxic chemicals with safer alternatives wherever feasible. You can do your part to decrease serious health issues caused by chemical exposure by passing this important bill.

Most small businesses support protecting workers through stronger toxic chemical regulations, according to a poll by the American Sustainable Business Council.

Families and workers in Massachusetts need your help now. Please write back and tell me what you plan to do.
