Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed S. 239, paired down from its original version, which gives the Vermont Department of Health the authority to require manufactures of products with toxic chemicals to disclose chemicals that are present in children’s products that can cause harmful health effects. The law provides a list of 66 chemicals of high concern to children, and manufacturers must notify the health department if any of those chemicals are in their products by July 1, 2016 and submit disclosures biennially. The health commissioner must also provide a detailed description of the rule-making process by July 1, 2017.
