New Jersey LCV applauds Biden administration’s PFAS action
TRENTON – The following is a statement by Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, on the Biden administration’s announcement of new requirements for chemical manufacturers to test and publicly report the amount of chemicals known as PFAS that are contained in household items like duct tape, pots and pans non-stick and stain resistant furniture, which is the first step towards reducing their presence in drinking water.
“Earlier this year, the Murphy administration set some of the toughest limits in the country to protect New Jersey residents from PFAS / PFOA chemicals, and now the rest of the country will benefit from these new demands from the Biden administration. . said Ed Potosnak, executive director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. “Protecting residents and our drinking water from these ‘eternal chemicals,’ which are bioaccumulative, toxic, and can lead to a myriad of health problems, including cancer, has long been the focus of New Jersey LCV attention and other rights groups across the state. It’s great to see the federal government following New Jersey. This is what leadership looks like. “
New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to
elect environmental champions, hold public officials to account and support laws that
protect our environment and improve people’s quality of life.
