BETHESDA, Md.—The Adhesive and Sealant Council urged immediate congressional action on reform for the Toxic Substance Control Act during the National Association of Manufacturer's 2014 Manufacturing Summit from June 11-12 in Washington.
“Getting something done on TSCA reform in the 114th Congress is at a critical juncture,” said Mark Collatz, ASC's director of regulatory affairs. “By bringing those involved in day-to-day operations to tell their stories, we hope our elected officials will better understand just how important it is to get a TSCA reform bill passed now.”
ASC said it and dozens of other associations discussed a wide range of issues and concerns impacting U.S. manufacturing with members of the Senate, House of Representatives and key congressional staff.
Attendees also had the opportunity to hear about some of the Obama Administration's and congressional initiatives to improve U.S. manufacturing prospects during presentations by Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-N.Y.
