Subject: Contact your Senators--Green Chemistry Needs Your Support

 From the ACS Legislative Action Network; this seems particularly  
apropos to Chemical Health and Safety.

Dear LAN Member:

In late September, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1215, the  
Green Chemistry Research and Development Act.  This bipartisan  
legislation establishes a new federal, inter-agency, green chemistry  
R&D program; however, the Senate must pass similar legislation before  
this bill can become law.

As the 109th Congress rapidly comes to a close, we urge you to ask  
your senators to pass this legislation.  Even if it doesn't pass this  
year, constituent action will help the scientific community to  
advocate on behalf of it next year.

Just link to, and click on  
"Green Chemistry Needs Your Support." Thank you for your support.

Bradley R. Smith
