"Last night, President Joe Biden signed into law Congressman Salud Carbajal’s (CA-24) ‘Clean Airport Agenda’, a slate of bipartisan bills aimed at helping curb the threat of forever chemicals near airports.

The bills are part of the bicameral aviation policy package crafted over the past year with the help of Rep. Carbajal and his colleagues on the House Aviation Subcommittee.

The‘Clean Airport Agenda’ includes Rep. Carbajal’s Pollution-Free Aviation Sites (PFAS) Act, which establishes a grant program to support airports as they replace firefighting foams containing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). It also contains the Save Our Airports Reporting Act, which requires regular progress reports from federal agencies as airports phase out these ‘forever chemicals.’"
