The Oregon House passed a bill Tuesday that requires more disclosures for toxic chemicals on some products used by children.  It passed 39 to 21, and mandates that some chemicals be phased out. 

 

John Huffman of The Dalles voted "no" on the bill because he felt that it was anti-business and goes too far.   He says it is far stricter than current EPA rules and that there can also be a safety cost to over-regulation  -

 

"I honestly believe that there's a good heart behind every bill -  but you have to ask yourself in trying to do further good- how many people are going to die because something now is not available to them because of litigation or increased requirements - and i honestly think that Oregon is out of balance when it comes to those questions."  

 

The "toxics disclosure for healthy kids act" now heads to the Senate.
