A number of chemicals known to disrupt hormones also appear to affect the size and number of fat cells or hormones that regulate appetite and metabolism.

We are supporting three bills this legislative session that address priority chemicals in children’s products.  After countless committee hearings, two of our bills have completed their committee paths and await floor votes in both houses.
