Editorial Urges Lawmakers To Pass Bill To Ban Bisphenol A
A San Francisco Chronicle editorial urges the California Legislature to pass legislation (AB 1319), by Assembly member Betsy Butler (D-Marina del Ray), that would prohibit bisphenol A in products aimed at young children. The editorial states that chemical and can-manufacturing companies "lobbied furiously last year to kill" a similar bill. The editorial concludes, "This time, legislators need to act, not on behalf of industry lobbyists, but in the interest of children's health."
