I commend @POTUS for his efforts to address these dangerous chemicals. No one should have to worry that the air they breathe or the water they drink can make them sick, & today's announcement is an important step in implementing federal standards to further protect Americans.

 

Hazardous PFAS chemicals can be found everywhere: from the water we drink to fire fighters’ equipment. We need to take aggressive action to combat these toxins — today’s actions are a step forward, and I will keep working to combat PFAS contamination. washingtonpost.com → Biden administration moves to curtail toxic ‘forever chemicals’

In the richest nation on earth, access to clean drinking water shouldn't be determined by a zip code.

For months, I've worked with a bipartisan group to ban these forever chemicals. @POTUS's move to protect families & crack down on PFAS is the right one.

Big news from the Biden administration on regulating toxic PFAS chemicals!
 
These dangerous chemicals are in many of the products Americans use every day, despite health risks.
 
Thank you, @POTUS and @EPA, for fighting for cleaner, safer communities.
 
washingtonpost.com → Biden administration moves to curtail toxic ‘forever chemicals’

 

Happy to see the @EPA taking much-needed steps to protect Americans from toxic PFAS chemicals that are associated with severe health ailments.

The House has already passed legislation setting a national standard to limit these toxic chemicals—now, we need the Senate to act.

 

This is a big deal. PFAS, or ‘Forever Chemicals’ have been plaguing Pennsylvania’s fountains and faucets for years.

Thank you @POTUS and @EPA for addressing this public health concern.
washingtonpost.com → Biden administration moves to curtail toxic ‘forever chemicals’

 

This is great news! This month I welcomed @EPAMichaelRegan to NH to discuss this action & more to protect our communities from dangerous #PFAS chemicals. Proud to lead action against PFAS in Congress—I'll keep working with @EPA to halt new PFAS compounds from entering the market.

 

Evidence has shown that exposure to PFAS can lead to harmful health effects - that's why I've been working to to address the prevalence of these toxic forever chemicals. Glad to see @EPA launch a comprehensive, national strategy to combat PFAS pollution.

Americans’ expectations for Joe Biden are falling lower every day…

 

Revealing: Build Back Better really means…“lower expectations.”

 

We went from "Build Back Better" to "lower your expectations" in less than a year. #EmptyShelvesJoe

 

The Washington Post tells Americans to expect empty shelves inside their grocery stores, then blames the consumer for overreacting, when they should be demanding answers from the Biden Administration. Not playing defense for them.

Spoiler alert: It is Joe’s fault!

 

Glad to see @POTUS & @EPA taking this step to protect Americans. PFAS poses a serious threat to the health of our families, with underserved communities often suffering the worst from contamination in their water, air, and land. This is an encouraging first step.

 

I applaud the Biden administration for taking action to protect #CleanWater and remove dangerous forever chemicals from our water. I’m working to pass legislation that provides needed investments in America’s water infrastructure.

 

I'm encouraged by @EPA’s plan to address #PFAS contamination.

These forever chemicals pose a very real threat to public health and the environment. I look forward to hearing more from @EPAwater Assistant Administrator Radhika Fox this week as she comes before @EPWCmte.

 

It’s great news that the Biden admin announced steps to address PFAS contamination in our environment. PFAS chemicals threaten public health & it’s our duty to safeguard our water & air. We must also hold big polluters accountable for harm they’ve caused in MA and across the US.

 

Huge step forward to protect our communities from these "forever chemicals," especially for our firefighters and servicemembers who disproportionately come into contact with them. Another example of bold leadership coming out of this @WhiteHouse. 👏

 

20 #PFAS contaminants were found across Chicago's water supply between 2012 and 2017. These dangerous chemicals have been linked to a number of health problems. Today's announcement by @EPA is an important step in the right direction to protect our drinking water & public health.

 

Unprecedented amounts of PFAS have been found in communities across Michigan, including in my own district. I’m glad to see The White House taking action to defeat these forever chemicals—Americans’ health is at stake.

 

For years, I’ve pushed our government to address the dangerous levels of PFAS in Wisconsin’s waters that have posed a risk to our public health and environment.

Proud to work with an administration and @EPA that is finally cracking down on these forever chemicals.

 

PFAS pollution threatens the wellbeing of our children, families, and communities. Taking steps to rid our waters and our environment of these harmful chemicals is crucial. This is an important move by @POTUS. We need to move with urgency, and there’s more work to be done here.

 

EPA's ambitious agenda takes long-needed action to protect the American people from harmful PFAS contaminants.

I thank @POTUS and @EPAMichaelRegan for their bold leadership & look forward to ensuring this action is completed in a timely, science-based manner.

 

Today’s announcement is a step in the right direction

But we must keep working until we get clear, strict standards and full remediation of and accountability for contaminations to ensure all NYers and Americans have the clean drinking water they deserve

nytimes.com → Biden Administration Plans New Regulations for Toxic ‘Forever Chemicals’

 

In August Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) & I sent a letter to the Admin urging them to ban the use of one of these PFAS chemicals.

Soon after the EPA banned this chemical from being used on our crops.

I'm glad to see this Admin continue to take further actions.
nytimes.com → Biden Administration Plans New Regulations for Toxic ‘Forever Chemicals’

 

Michigan families know the dangerous consequences of PFAS. This news is an important step forward, but there is still more to be done to improve the health and safety of our communities, including at military installations across our state.

#PFAS has long been linked to a list of health problems, and it continues to pollute our land and water. Today, @POTUS and @EPA announced a science-based roadmap to clean up and protect communities from PFAS.

Congress must:

✅Close the racial #WealthGap.
#ActOnClimate NOW.
✅Pass @POTUS Biden's #BuildBackBetter Agenda.

That's how we can ensure #CleanWater access for ALL.

 

Investing in our communities and focusing on common-sense legislation that protects the health & safety of our environment will make a big difference toward providing our families with access to clean water.

 

Congress must invest far more into our water infrastructure.

With my Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, Congress has a once-in-a-generation chance to make the biggest investment in water in our nation's history.

 

Congress needs to deliver historic investments in our drinking water and wastewater infrastructure with a focus on upgrading aging infrastructure, addressing the threat of climate change, investing in new technologies, and providing assistance to marginalized communities.

 

Clean waterways offer significant environmental & economic value for our communities.

Passing my NY-NJ Watershed Protection Act would preserve access to our treasured waterways while delivering restoration funds to frontline communities suffering from environmental injustice.

 

Congress must pass bold investments to help communities improve their wastewater and drinking water systems, and stormwater infrastructure, while enhancing resilience to climate change. I’m working to get transformational legislation to the president’s desk.

 

With 2 in 10 Delawareans relying on wells, access to #CleanWater is crucial - but we can't stop there.

#CleanWater must also be affordable. That's why I introduced #HR3293, to help low-income homes pay their drinking water & wastewater bills.

 

Congress needs to finally treat access to clean water as a human right! I’ve introduced several bills to improve access to clean water, including legislation to prevent water shutoffs during #COVID & give water debt relief to struggling Americans.

Access to clean water is a human right—no matter where someone lives, their skin color or how much money they make. To build back better, we must remove lead pipes, rebuild our nation's crumbling and dangerous water systems and bring environmental justice to every community.

 

As @TransportDems Chair, I’m fighting for investments in water infrastructure to protect people’s health and the environment. And I’m leading the Congressional fight for robust national protections for rivers, lakes, streams and wetlands and to undo the damage from the Trump era.

 

Clean water is a human right. Every American deserves to know their drinking water is safe & have access to America's beautiful lakes and rivers. That's why the Clean Water Act is so important, and why @EPA must continue to take the necessary steps to protect these resources.

 

That every Delawarean & American regardless of ⤵️

has access to safe, reliable, affordable, and #CleanWater.

 

In Congress, I’m fighting for #CleanWater. On the Willamette River, I’m reminded why.

 

The Chattahoochee River runs through our community, and it is so important that our friends and neighbors can rely on a safe, clean environment for their families.

 

The Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge is a great example of how we can transform heavily polluted areas back into thriving ecosystems that are safe for fishing, kayaking, & swimming.

 

The Mohawk River flows through my hometown of Amsterdam, NY and is the largest tributary to the historic Hudson River.

Fighting to conserve and clean up this watershed is a top priority for me, which is why I introduced bipartisan legislation to restore & protect our waterways.
