Both houses of Congress passed the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act, which enacts the toughest lead standards in the world and bans six phthalates from children’s products! MomsRising.org members were critical in carrying this legislation to victory. Thanks to your over 100,000 letters to Congress we’ve won a major victory of parents over corporate interests (yes, 100,000!!!). In a stunning recognition of the power of everyday moms and dads, only 3 Senators and one House Representative dared to vote against the legislation. We’ve got the power! We’re not stopping now–there’s another critically important piece of legislation to keep kids safe from toxic products which needs our support, the Kids Safe Chemical Act–and we need your help. This Act mandates that chemicals are proven to be safe BEFORE they are put in children’s products, instead of being pulled after they are found to be toxic.
