“House Panel’s PFAS Provisions Set Up Showdown With Senate”

“The Senate on Thursday put off further action for weeks on its mammoth defense authorization bill that has become a battleground for efforts to address exposure to PFAS.

But the Senate’s $740.5 billion fiscal 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (S. 4049), which the chamber is to return to after a two-plus week recess for the July 4 holiday, will have to be reconciled with a House defense bill.

The House version now has stronger PFAS provisions.”
