Dear Members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives:

We are writing on behalf of the American Alliance for Innovation (AAI) to urge members of the 114th Congress to support introduction and passage of bipartisan legislation to update the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The AAI is an alliance of trade associations representing a broad spectrum of the economy, businesses large and small. AAI represents many major industry sectors, all along the chemicals value chain, including aerospace, agriculture, apparel, automotive, building and construction materials, chemical and raw material production, consumer and industrial goods, distribution, electronics, energy, equipment manufacturers, food and grocery, footwear, healthcare products and medical technology, information technology, mining and metals, paper products, plastics, retail, storage, and travel goods.

Updating TSCA so the law ensures the safe use of chemicals, encourages the development of new products, and protects American jobs continues to be a top priority for our associations.

Thanks to growing bipartisan support and the significant progress to date, we believe
the new Congress presents a strong opportunity to finally make meaningful changes to TSCA.

The members of AAI are committed to doing our part to finding a federal approach that will benefit all consumers and industry, and we strongly urge members on both sides of the aisle to lend their support to make bipartisan TSCA reform a reality in the 114th Congress.
