Vermont: "Governor Signs Toxic Chemical Regulations Bill"

"Gov. Peter Shumlin on Tuesday signed into law a program to regulate toxic chemicals in children’s products.

“It enables parents of all Vermonters, to make informed choices when buying products for their children,” Shumlin said at a bill signing outside Seventh Generation’s Burlington headquarters.

Shumlin pointed to Seventh Generation, the manufacturer of environmentally safe household products, as an example of “toxic-free” business practices the law hopes to encourage by requiring manufacturers to report toxic chemicals in their products."
