Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports a campaign by Environment America with its team of more than 170 researchers, advocates, attorneys, and communications experts. It calls for the Senate to enact the PFAS Action Act, H.R. 2467, which passed in the House on July 21, 2021 (241-183, Roll Call No. 217).

We will send your email message to your Senators
.

Toxic chemicals called PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are health hazards that contaminate American waterways. Please take action to protect public health and waterways by supporting the “PFAS Action Act.”

PFAS chemicals, also known as “forever chemicals,” are linked to cancer and congenital disabilities. They have been found in the groundwater of 38 states, affecting as many as 110 million Americans.

The “PFAS Action Act” will set drinking water standards, limit PFAS releases into waterways, and place a moratorium on new PFAS chemicals. It will designate PFAS as hazardous substances under the EPA’s Superfund program, which will accelerate the clean-up process in communities and at military facilities all across this nation.

I strongly urge you to support this important legislation. Vote for the “PFAS Action Act.”

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
