WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today issued the following statement following House passage of the House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2576, to Modernize the Toxic Substance Control Act:

“Reforming the nearly four-decade-old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is long past due and will help strengthen America’s economy and create more manufacturing jobs. Today, the House took decisive action to improve protections for public health while giving manufacturers and other job creators the clarity and certainty they need to do business and grow our economy. I congratulate my good friend and colleague John Shimkus for his strong leadership in writing and passing this bipartisan bill.”
