ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland advocacy group is holding a news conference to discuss toxins and developmental disease.

A Maryland PIRG public health expert will talk Friday in Annapolis about the outcome of various bills in the General Assembly. Lawmakers who are sponsoring legislation aimed at improving public health also are scheduled to attend.

The House of Delegates and the Senate have already passed legislation to ban the chemical bisphenol-A from infant formula containers by 2014. House bill sponsor James Hubbard, a Prince George’s County Democrat, is scheduled to attend the briefing.
