Urge Congress to Support Animal Protection in the Safe Chemicals Act

Urge Congress to Support Animal Protection in the Safe Chemicals Act 
Dear Julio,
In a move to better protect human health and the environment from toxic substances, Congress is currently considering legislation that would tighten regulations on chemicals used in industrial and consumer goods, and ultimately reduce and replace animal testing.The Safe Chemicals Act of 2010 (S. 3209) is a small step in the right direction to end animal testing, but it stops short of actually requiring the use of available alternatives, the sharing of existing test data among companies in place of new testing, or sufficiently prioritizing the further development of advanced “21st century” testing approaches that could replace conventional animal tests.
Please contact your two U.S. Senators to urge them to strengthen measures to reduce and replace animal testing in S. 3209, the Safe Chemicals Act. 
TAKE ACTION Please make brief, polite phone calls to your two U.S. Senators to urge them to strengthen measures under the Safe Chemicals Act to help end animal testing.
When you call, remember to leave your name and address so it is clear that
 you are a constituent. You can say:
"Hello, my name is [your name] and I live in [your town]. As a constituent, I'm calling to urge [senator's name] to strengthen measures under S. 3209, the Safe Chemicals Act, to help reduce the use of animals in chemical testing. Thank you."
After making your calls, please send a follow-up email to your senators about the Safe Chemicals Act.
Thank you for all you do for animals
Sincerely,
Mike Markarian
President 
Humane Society Legislative Fund
