"As parents’ awareness of potential toxins in the home has grown in recent years, so has their anxiety. Minnesota has helped lead the way to regulate worrisome chemicals, and federal reform may be next."
The article quotes Clean Water Action organizer Kim LaBo, speaking with concerned parents at a recent event in St. Paul. "We're operating in this virtually unregulated environment," she says. " We have 80,000 chemicals put into products, and less than 10 percent have been tested. There is an opportunity coming out that would really change how we do things in the United States. We have a 30-year-old law. It's broken. It's not protecting our health."
