House Bill 1180, 2SHB 1180 – Prohibiting the use of bisphenol A
2SHB 1180 passed the House by a vote of 95 to 1 prohibiting the use bisphenol A, which is a chemical used to harden plastics, in any product containing food or beverages intended for use by a child 3 and under. In addition the bill restricts the use of bisphenol A in sports bottles. 2SHB 1180 also establishes monetary penalties for violation of the act which takes effect July 1, 2010. The Senate passed SSB 6248 which would also ban the use of bisphenol by a vote of 36 to 9. However the Senate’s bill does not regulate bisphenol A in sports bottles. 2SHB 1180 is now before the Senate Health & Long Term Care Committee for further consideration and the House will consider SSB 6248.
