January 3rd, Suffolk County passed a measure that bans using receipts coated with the chemical Bisphenol A, BPA. The Safer Sales Slip Act is a first in the nation ban.

Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern's Safer Sales Slip Act was signed into law by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone at Jackson’s Restaurant, a local business that is committed to using BPA-free cash register receipts to protect public health. This law prohibits the use of thermal sales receipts that contain the chemical BPA. BPA has been connected to a myriad of health problems for adults, children and unborn babies. Research shows connections to cancers of the breast and prostate, endocrine disorders, learning disabilities, obesity and diabetes. BPA enters the body through the skin and hand to mouth contact, and is detectable in more than 93% of the population
