WASHINGTON, D.C., May 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - DuPont
applauded the bipartisan Chemical Safety Improvement Act introduced by
Senators Frank R. Lautenberg and David Vitter and numerous Republican and
Democrat co-sponsors.

"DuPont strongly supports TSCA modernization, and we believe that successful
reform requires this sort of bipartisan approach. In putting forth a broadly
bipartisan bill, Senators Lautenberg and Vitter demonstrate how Congress
should work to address significant policy," said Vice President and Chief
Sustainability Officer Linda J. Fisher.

"We have spent several years actively discussing TSCA reform with members of
the U.S. Congress, the NGO community and business, and this bill reflects many
of the thoughtful ideas we have heard in those discussions. The Chemical
Safety Improvement Act provides a sound basis for legislation that can pass
the U.S. Senate and bring needed change to the U.S. chemicals management
regime," Fisher said.

DuPont (NYSE:DD) has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the
global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services
since 1802. The company believes that by collaborating with customers,
governments, NGOs, and thought leaders we can help find solutions to such
global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere,
decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the
