Sign the petition.

Connecticut State Bill HB 6120 would prohibit any entity in Connecticut from using animals to test cosmetic, pharmaceutical and chemical products when validated alternative testing methods are available to such entity. This is the extent of the bill, which supports this measure with an assertion that it would improve public health by requiring the use of models that offer improved accuracy when compared to the animal model, and to prevent unnecessary animal cruelty.

MORE INFORMATION

This bill, which in part mimics those passed in California and New Jersey, expands its coverage to include pharmaceutical and chemical products, as well as cosmetics. As with the two existing state laws, this prohibition is applied only where a valid alternative exists, meaning that manufacturers and testing facilities will be expected to comply now in areas where alternatives are already in use, but will not impact animal testing in areas where the federal government still requires such testing and has no approved on non-animal methodologies.

Please contact your Connecticut State Representative and urge their support an end to the use of animal tests for cosmetic, pharmaceutical and chemical products.

Thank you!
