Safe Toys Bill / Initiative

February 14, 2008

Your help is needed immediately to protect our children from known toxic chemicals in toys and everyday products.

LD 2048 - "An Act to Protect Children's Health and the Environment from Toxic Chemicals in Children's Products" (sponsored by Representative Hannah Pingree) - would stop the unrestricted exposure of our children to known unsafe chemicals.

The bill is under attack by the chemical industry. Your Maine legislators need to hear from you immediately.

Please take a moment right now to send a message to your representatives.
