Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) is working on a Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) reform bill, which he hopes to introduce in the early part of 2013. The senator would need to have bi-partisan support for the bill to move forward, as all indications point to Sen. Lautenberg (D-NJ)plans to reintroduce his TSCA reform legislation next year, that was approved by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee earlier this year. Vitter will likely need Lautenberg’s support of his bill if he wants it to move forward, because without his support it is unlikely other democrats would support Vitter’s bill. Sen. Vitter’s bill is likely to be heavily driven by industry’s input, which will be a stark contrast to Sen. Lautenberg’s bill. It will be up to Vitter and his staff to find that fine line to attract bi-partisan support needed for the bill to move forward next year.
