State Sen. Phil Boyle (R–Bay Shore) was recognized for his work to protect children’s health at a family friendly picnic held at George S. King Park in Bay Shore on August 21.

Boyle, whose district includes North Babylon and Deer Park, has been working to pass a bill to help protect the health of District Four's many children, currently labeled the Child-Safe Products Act.

According to Boyle, the bill is intended to prevent the use of dangerous chemicals and ensure the use of safer chemical alternatives in children's products. It would identify chemicals of concern and keep them out of children's products, providing an outline for addressing the issue of toxic chemicals in children's products in the present and the future.

"I would like to thank the Environmental Advocates of New York and friends for this honorary picnic in the park," Boyle told those in attendance. "Every day we are gaining more support for this historic bill and I am confident that we will pass it into law in our next legislative session in Albany."

The bill has gained 37 co-sponsors, passing the necessary number of 32 to be passed in the New York State Senate.
