BILL NUMBER:S3703

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in
relation to expanding the TRIS-free children and babies act

PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to limit children's exposure to
certain chemicals.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would prohibit the use of TRIS
(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) in certain child care
products. Justification TRIS is the common name for a family of chlori-
nated flame retardants. In 2011, the Legislature banned the use of THIS
(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (TCEP) in child care products because of the
risks TCEP poses to children's health.

In the 1970s, THIS (1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) was used in
children's sleepwear as a substitute for THIS (2,3-dibromopropyl) phosp-
hate (TRIS-BP), which was banned by the Consumer Product Safety Commis-
sion because of potential health concerns. Subsequent testing on TDCPP
caused manufacturers to stop using TDCPP in children's sleepwear volun-
tarily. However, TDCPP is currently being used in plastics, resins and
polyurethane foams found in car seats and baby products. TDCPP is not
chemically bound to these products. As a result, TDCPP is present in
indoor air and dust, in the environment, and in human tissue. Younger
children, particularly babies, are especially vulnerable because of
their smaller and developing bodies.

California recently added TDCPP to its Proposition 65 list, which lists
"chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth
defects or other reproductive harm," because of animal studies demon-
strating TDCPP's adverse health effects.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S. 6080 of 2012 Referenced to Senate Commit-
tee on Finance

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect December 1, 2015.
