U.S. Congress: H.R. 535, the "PFAS Action Act of 2019"

January 14, 2019

Reps. Dingell (D-MI) and Upton (R-MI) introduced H.R. 535, the "PFAS Action Act of 2019" on Jan. 14. The bill would require the EPA Administrator to designate, within one year, all per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances as hazardous substances under Superfund (CERCLA). This designation would ensure that PFAS contamination is cleaned up under Superfund authorities.

A version of this bill has also been introduced in the Senate. See S.638
