The Senate voted Thursday to approve a bill to require the EPA to report on the safety of chemicals used in the production of citrus and fruit oils.
The Senate voted 95-0 to approve the bill, which would require the Environmental Protection Agency to review the safety record of chemicals in citrus and peach oils.
It would also require the agency to issue a report on how the agency will be able to make its information publicly available.
Democrats opposed the measure, arguing that it would require too much information for consumers and would not allow the EPA’s existing science to be put to the test.
Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah was the lone vote against the bill.
