Animal Testing Ban Resolution Heading Toward Assembly

California’s Senate approved a measure by State Senator Marty Block (SD-39) that urges the US to join California, the European Union (EU), and the countries of Norway, India, and Israel in banning animal testing of cosmetic products.

Block’s joint resolution, SJR 22, approved on a bipartisan vote of 31-0, urges the federal government to mandate alternative methods to animal testing when other testing methods are available. It is sponsored by Cruelty Free International and also supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, the State Humane Association and others.

California became the first state to restrict animal testing in 2000. Some countries, such as those in the EU, have completely banned the importation and sale of animal-tested products. EU sales account for nearly half of the global cosmetics market.

SJR 22 also calls on the US Congress to enact legislation that would establish reasonable deadlines for the prohibition on the testing and marketing of products, which have been tested on animals.
