PETA Successfully Lobbies Congress to Put Limitations on EPA’s Spending

August 2011

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) endocrine disruptor screening program is so poorly designed that it is currently killing thousands of animals for no reason—no information will come out of it that will be used to regulate chemicals. Along with providing the EPA with an alternative approach that would save countless animals, PETA has also successfully lobbied Congress to put some limitations on spending for this program. House Report language for 2012 tells the EPA that it must stop what it’s currently doing and change its approach before the agency can start again. In addition, the report allocates money from animal experimentation to non-animal methods—the combined result of which will save large numbers of animals over the course of the program.
