"Test It, Maybe," which was released last week, was produced to promote the Safe Chemicals Act. The group explains on YouTube, "We need Congress to pass the Safe Chemicals Act to reform our broken chemical policy and finally protect us from dangerous chemicals."
The act, which was first introduced by Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) in 2005, "would replace the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 to essentially reverse the burden of proof on chemical safety," reported The Huffington Post's Lynne Peeples. Yet "the burden is expected to remain on the EPA at least through this year due to a strong partisan split over strengthening chemical reform."
Along with the video, the League of Conservation Voters is also encouraging Americans to sign a petition and tell their Senator to vote for the Safe Chemicals Act this fall.
