"Cynics will say there’s no bipartisanship in Washington - well, today, we’ve proved them ‎wrong. As of today, the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act is officially the law of the land, and the American people, the chemical industry, and our public health and safety will all benefit for it."
