Legislation has been introduced in the U.S. senate that would act to reduce PFAS exposure among military families.
An op ed published in The Hill by Arlene Bloom, titled Will Congress finally address toxic ‘forever chemicals? focuses on the spread of PFAS pollution from a Solvay plant in New Jersey to the rest of the Northeastern U.S. The study on this contamination crisis was published in Science. A commentary published in the same journal focuses on the problems in our chemical regulatory system that allow for these contamination crisis to occur.
