from Politico Pro (login required)
Sens. Tom Udall and David Vitter have introduced their compromise on updating the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act, with seven Democrats and seven Republicans as cosponsors.
Vitter told reporters that the list of original cosponsors is "a very strong statement in terms of our ability to move forward and pass this legislation," he said, adding that he is "very confident" the bill could get more than 60 Senate votes and majority support in the House.
Udall called it a "good solid bipartisan bill" that involved input from EPA, trial lawyers, chemical companies and public health and environmental groups.
