Act Would Limit Animal Testing for Cosmetics

The latest version of the Humane Cosmetics Act, introduced in November in the House by Democrat Don Beyer and in the Senate by Republican Martha McSally, has been referred to the relevant committees (Committee on Energy and Commerce in the House and Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions in the Senate). The bill proposes to ban conducting or contracting for cosmetic animal testing in the United States and selling or transporting cosmetics developed or manufactured using such conduct or contract.
