“House PFAS Bill Has ‘No Prospects’ in Senate, Barrasso Says”

“A far-reaching House bill that would force the federal government to address PFAS contamination has little hope of becoming law in its current form, according to the chairman of the Senate’s environment committee.

“It has no prospects in the Senate,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) told Bloomberg Environment. “None.”

Barrasso’s comments came as the House is swiftly moving toward passage of H.R. 535, a bill that would change the way these persistent and potentially toxic chemicals are regulated.”
