The United States House of Representatives today passed a bipartisan bill that would begin to address the country’s PFAS crisis, H.R. 2467. The PFAS Action Act of 2021 will restrict PFAS air and water pollution and help to jumpstart cleanup at polluted sites across the country.
Today’s publication of a peer-reviewed study—Fatalities from methylene chloride exposure in the United States, 1980-2018: A comprehensive case series and policy implications—adds to the strong case for EPA to fully ban the use of paint strippers containing methylene chloride from use in the United States.
