U.S. Chamber Letter to Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, on two bills related to Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in advance of the Committee's hearing.

May 21, 2019

Dear Chairman Barrasso and Ranking Member Carper:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce appreciates the Committee holding the hearing, “Examining Legislation to Address the Risks Associated with Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).” The Chamber is committed to proactively working with legislators, regulators, and all stakeholders to establish risk-based standards that protect human health and the environment. While well-intentioned, the legislation to be considered at the hearing should be improved to more appropriately address issues related to PFAS.
