US State-level Chemicals Policy Database
The database can be searched by state, region, status (e.g., enacted, proposed, and failed), policy category (e.g., pollution prevention, single chemical restriction, etc.), chemical, and product type (e.g., children's products, cleaning products, etc.).
To search the database, use the six pull-down menus below to make selections in one or more of the pull-down menus. When making selections in multiple pull-down menus, the results will include only entries that contain all of the selections highlighted. The database can also be searched by making multiple selections from one pull-down menu. In order to select more than one item in each menu, hold down the command key (Mac) or control key (PC) while making the selections. When making multiple selections in one pull-down menu, the results will include entries that contain any of the selections highlighted.
Additionally, the entire database can be searched by entering a bill number, word, or phrase into the box located below the pull-down menus. This will search the full database entries of each policy for the entered word or phrase, although it will not return results where the entered word or phase is found solely in the full-text document (word or pdf) of the policy.
To print the results of the search, click on the print icon located at the top of the returned results. To search again, click on "new search" located below each entry to reset the menus.
