2021 Environmental Scorecard for the Oregon Legislature

HB 2495

Toxics Free Kids Act (Update)

The original Toxic Free Kids Act passed in 2015 and needs some important updates. This bill would have updated the existing Toxic Free Kids Act program to align certain definitions with other states, improve efficiency of the Oregon Health Association (OHA) by removing limits to how many chemicals can be added to their database, and adding brand name and product model for clarity in reporting.

About the Scorecard

For more than 40 years, OLCV has protected Oregon's natural legacy. An essential part of our work is holding our elected officials accountable. The OLCV Environmental Scorecard is not only one of our most important accountability tools, but also a tradition. The first scorecard was published in 1973.

By sharing how each member of the Legislature voted on the most critical conservation bills, we help Oregonians understand whether legislators listened to their constituents, or if they listened to special interest groups instead. It also serves as a summary of environmental bills and includes special recognition of the legislative champions.
