"A package of bills have been unveiled by Michigan U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin (MI-07) Thursday to address PFAS exposure among service members and contamination on military installations in surrounding communities.

The five individual bills include measures to screen service members for PFAS exposure, prohibit procurement by the department of defense of products containing PFAS, and require transparency in cleanup efforts among others.

“When it comes to addressing PFAS exposure and contamination, the federal government has kicked the can down the road for way too long, and it’s left our service members and communities across Michigan shouldering the burden,” Slotkin said."
