Tell the Senate: Protect our health, not the chemical industry
I am writing to urge you to oppose the confirmation of Nancy Beck to Chair the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Nancy Beck has a track record of blocking protections that would reduce our children’s exposure to chemicals that harm brain health.
- Beck rewrote rules so that they ignored exposures to lead from pipes and paint.
- She directed EPA staff to ignore the exposure of neurotoxic chemicals from polluted drinking water, air and soil when evaluating risk, despite criticism from the EPA’s own Science Advisory Committee.
- She also helped block the proposed ban on brain-damaging pesticide chlorpyrifos and delayed children’s protections for lead by failing to update the hazard standard for lead paint.
Please oppose this nomination. Thank you,
