H.R. 2576: TSCA Modernization Act of 2015

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2576 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

The TSCA Modernization Act of 2015 would amend the Toxic Substances Control Act to expand the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to evaluate and regulate toxic chemicals. It would give the EPA further authority to impose fees to regulate chemicals. The House Committee on Energy and Commerce gave this report of the bill upon its introduction on May 27. The bill was passed almost unanimously, with a single opposing vote from Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA4). McClintock offered this explanation of his vote.
