Sen. O’Ban got this letter of thanks this year from the Washington Toxics Coalition for his support of a ban on harmful chemicals in children’s products and home furniture.
“Your leadership,” reads the letter, “and commitment to the Toxic-Free Kids and Families Act (ESHB 2545) put Washington state as the national leader in protecting children (and all of us) from toxic flam retardant chemicals used in children’s products and home furniture. THANK YOU!”
The Washington Toxics Coalition is made of up the following partner groups:
Arc of Washington
WA State Council of Firefighters
