Call Congressman Gonzalez's office today to ask him to co-sponsor the HB 5820 The Toxic Chemical Safety Act of 2010. Here's what you can say/write:
The number is (202) 225-3236 or you can email him here
Please Act Today -- The deadline for co-sponsoring this bill is Friday, December 3.
Call or email Rep. Gonzalez's office and ask him to take this simple action to protect our health from harmful chemicals!
Can you believe there are over 80,000 chemicals on the market place that have never been tested for safety? HB 5820 would bring common sense fixes to this broken system! It would:
* establish a health-based safety standard to test those 80,000 chemicals that have not yet been tested.
* require chemical companies to disclose the contents of their products, so that consumers and producers can make safe decisions.
* take action to ban the worst of the worst chemicals that we already know are harmful like BPA, lead, and mercury.
* help clean up communities bearing more than their fair share of chemical burdens, living on the fence-line of dangerous chemical plants.

After 20 years of safeguarding our health, we have made several allies who share our concerns. We are joined in this effort by groups from across the nation also striving for a safe future in the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families (SCHF) coalition.
