MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A stroller brigade rolled through Capitol Hill Tuesday, as mothers called on Congress to reform the nation’s chemical laws.

Actress Jennifer Beals led the way. She’s worried about the chemicals kids are exposed to every day, like Bisphenol-A used in food packaging.

The protesters want new regulations to identify and restrict the most dangerous chemicals to prevent cancer and other diseases.

The trade group American Chemistry Council says it supports a bipartisan plan called the chemical safety improvement act.

But Beals and her group wants even stricter legislation.
