Legislative Notebook: House votes for safer children's products
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota state representatives voted Friday to protect children from some toxic chemicals.
They approved on a 113-13 vote a measure to ban companies from intentionally putting formaldehyde in child care products. They backed a second bill 115-11 to keep bisphenol A out of baby and toddler food containers in the state.
Rep. John Persell, DFL-Bemidji, offered the formaldehyde bill because the substance is toxic and can cause cancer.
