Environmental Health Legislation Database
The National Conference of State Legislatures tracks environmental health legislation to bring you up-to-date, real-time information on bills that have been introduced in the fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. territories. Environmental health legislation addresses environmental factors that may adversely impact human health or the ecological balances essential to long-term human health and environmental quality, whether in the natural or man-made environment.
