Date: Nov. 29, 2016
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Environment

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, today lauded the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) announcement that asbestos would be included in the first 10 chemicals to be evaluated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

Senator Boxer said: "EPA made the right decision to include asbestos in the first 10 chemicals it will review under the new TSCA law. Asbestos is one of the most harmful substances known to humankind, and asbestos has been the poster child for TSCA reform. Hopefully asbestos will be banned and thousands of lives will be saved."
