This is a 45-day public comment period on five chemicals or chemical groups to be discussed at the November 2016 meeting of the Proposition 65 Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC).

Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.
