Toxic chemicals regulation could help create jobs and foster innovation, according to a new study.

The report released May 12 by the BlueGreen Alliance and Political Economy Research Institute counters arguments that Toxic Substances Control Act reforms and other environmental legislation will cost jobs and stifle research.

The BlueGreen Alliance is a national partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations focused on expanding green jobs.  The Political Economy Research Institute is an independent unit of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
