GOV BROWN TAKES STEPS TO REDUCE EXPOSURE TO TOXIC CHEMICALS

For Immediate Release

“For years we have been fighting to reduce our exposure to dangerous chemicals. We are thrilled that the Governor is putting public health first. Governor Brown is proving once again that he cares about protecting Californian’s from dangerous chemicals.”

Recent articles from the Chicago Tribune point to the deceitful action by the American Chemistry Council (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-05-09/business/ct-met-flames-science-20120509_1_flame-retardants-chemical-industry-toxic-chemicals).

“But we cannot rest now. We need to continue to fight to reduce our exposure to dangerous chemicals. We need to set up a Green Chemistry program to give the state the authority to ban, label, phase out, and reduce our exposure to all the dangerous chemicals.”
