PFAS chemicals are a class of chemicals most in need of immediate policy action due to their wide-spread use in products, prevalence in breast milk and people’s bodies, and persistence in the environment. Known as “forever chemicals” due to their inability to break down, PFAS also persists in the waste stream, contaminating our soil, air, and water.
We need to stop PFAS pollution at the source.
Clean Water Action's 2023 PFAS prevention priorities for this legislative session include bills that would:
- Require companies to disclose how they are using PFAS chemicals
- Ban unnecessary and dangerous PFAS use in everyday products
- Expand the prohibition on PFAS in firefighting foam
By passing this legislation we can reduce exposure in our homes while also preventing these toxic chemicals from ending up in our soil, air and water.
Clean Water Action is talking to lawmakers in Saint Paul now but we need your support to make sure these bills are prioritized. Join us and ask your Minnesota State Senator and Representative to support this common sense legislation - together we can win strong protections for Minnesota waters, environment, and communities.
