A00164 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A164B
 
SPONSOR: Rosenthal L (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general business law, in relation to menstrual product labeling   PURPOSE: This bill requires each package of box containing tampons sold in New York State shall contain a plain and conspicuous printed list of all ingredients in such menstrual products.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends the general business law by adding a new section 399-aaaa. Section two sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Tampons are widely used by women across the United States and constitute a multi-billion dollar industry. Tampons are marketed and sold with little or no data assuring the ingredients they contain are safe. These products are intended for use on or in the extremely permeable membranes of the vaginal area of a woman's body. Toxic and allergenic chemicals may be contained in tampons, raising significant health concerns. Label- ing of tampon packages would serve to protect the public and allow consumers to make informed decisions regarding the purchase of tampons.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-18: A.521-A - Reported to Rules 2015-16: A.9922 - Referred to Consumer Affairs and Protection   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This bill shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it shall have become a law.
