Transcript of Jennifer Beals twitter chat during Senate’s hearing on toxic chemicals

Jennifer Beals

This morning Jennifer Beals joined a twitter chat during the live streaming of the US Senate’s “Strengthening Public Health Protections by Addressing Toxic Chemical Threats” full committee hearing. A bi-partisan bill, called The Chemical Safety Improvement Act (S.1009) sponsored by Sen. David Vitter and the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, was introduced in May 2013. Joined by 22 of their colleagues as co-sponsors, this marks the first bipartisan effort to reform and update the outdated and broken Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
