TSCA Amendment proposed - Compound 1080 and Sodium Cyanide Elimination Act

A bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives to amend the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)to prohibit the use, production, sale, importation or exportation of the poison sodium fluoroacetate (known as "Compound 1080") and to prohibit the use of sodium cyanide for predator control.

This bill would add sodium fluoroacetate to polychlorinated biphenyls and mercury as substances banned by Section 6 of the Toxic Substances Control Act, 15 U.S.C. § 2605. In addition, the bill would prohibit the use of sodium cyanide in a predator control device, a defined term in the bill.
