A bipartisan bill to reform some of the country’s laws regulating chemicals has been introduced in the Senate, but some environmental advocates say it’s missing key provisions.

In today's world, we spend so much time lobbying and criticizing our politicians for what we would like them to do that we often neglect to praise them for a job well done. I would like to publicly thank Reps. Mary Lou Marzian, Ruth Ann Palumbo, Joni L. Jenkins, Tom Riner and Susan Westrom for cosponsoring House Bill 287 and fighting for the health of Kentucky's families.
Had it passed, HB 287 would have helped to protect Kentuckians from the toxic chemical bisphenol-A, or BPA, which is found in canned foods, beverage containers and even thermal receipt paper. BPA has been linked to numerous forms of cancer, reproductive issues, obesity, developmental disabilities and heart disease, all of which have impacted the lives of Kentucky families in some way.
