Governor Brown Announces New Standards to Reduce Toxic Chemicals in Furniture

Thursday, we posted HBO To Air " "Toxic Hot Seat."  In a follow up, I noticed that California's Brown " announced the approval of the state’s new flammability standards for upholstered furniture, the culmination of the administration’s year-long effort to modernize the standards and reduce Californians’ exposure to harmful flame retardant chemicals."
“Today, California is curbing toxic chemicals found in everything from high chairs to sofas,” said Governor Brown. “These new standards will keep the furniture in our homes fire-safe and limit unnecessary exposure to toxic flame retardants.
