Statement: Environment America endorses “Protect Drinking Water from PFAS Act”

Five Congressmen introduced a bill this week to combat toxic drinking water pollution from per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). While PFAS chemicals are putting the drinking water of millions of Americans at risk, EPA has failed to set a clear limit to drive cleanup of contaminated water. This bill would jump-start the process of creating an overall limit on PFAS in our drinking water.

The Transportation Corridors Bills

The Transportation Corridors bills would commit the state to spending billions of dollars to build three new tollways that would lead to more congestion, more air pollution, and would take money away from more pressing transportation needs, all in the name of rural economic development. But building new roads is not an effective economic development strategy in the 21st Century. Instead of boosting the economy, these roads will destroy communities, encourage sprawl, and increase regional inequities.

This legislation would result in the biggest expansion of the state highway network since the mid-1950s and is a massive step in the wrong direction for Florida.
