Rep. Jeff Brand Joined White House Call About New EPA PFAS Rules

Last Wednesday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced new federal regulations on PFAS in drinking water, the first federal regulation of its kind. MInnesota House District 18A Representative Jeff Brand (DFL - Saint Peter) was asked to speak at a White House briefing on the new measure. He joined White House and EPA officials to highlight the importance of a PFAS-free future.

"Turning off the tap on PFAS is vital to public health, and we did that here in Minnesota last year when we passed Amara’s law, which I authored, to ban PFAS in products sold here in the state," Brand said.  "Saying no to PFAS puts our community over corporations, and this announcement is a major stride to protect the next generation from these harmful chemicals. Everyone, regardless of zip code, deserves access to safe drinking water without having to worry about these dangerous contaminants."
