These are the April 15, 16, 17, and 22, 1980 hearings on the "Toxic Substances Control Act Amendments of 1980," held before the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Finance of the U.S. House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce. From the opening statement of James H. Scheuer: "This morning the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Finance will commence 4 days of hearings on the Toxic Substances Control Act oversight hearings. We will also be considering H.R. 7003, which contains a 2-year authorization for the administration of the Act, as well as other provisions which I believe merit subcommittee consideration. The Congress enacted the Toxic Substances Control Act in 1976 in response to growing concern about the effects of chemicals on health and the environment. Faced with mounting evidence that chemicals contribute to the causes of cancer, birth defects, and other serious illnesses, Congress mandated that the Environmental Protection Agency take specific action to protect society from the effects of harmful chemicals." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Melvyn Bell, Eugene Berman, Marilyn C. Bracken, Sydney J. Butler, Faith Thompson Campbell, Devra Lee Davis, Paul C. Fleischer, Richard Fleming, Sally Greenberg, Thomas P. Grumbly, Joseph P. Hile, Steven D. Jellinek, Janie A. Kinney, John J.
