AFSCME’s Saunders on EPA rule limiting ‘forever chemicals’ in tap water: This gives our communities ‘greater peace of mind’

WASHINGTON – AFSCME President Lee Saunders released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency announced a new rule limiting PFAS chemicals in drinking water:

“On behalf of AFSCME members nationwide, including thousands who work in water safety, I commend the Environmental Protection Agency’s new rule setting limits on dangerous manufactured ‘forever chemical’ toxins in our drinking water. This new rule will give all of us greater peace of mind that when we turn on the tap, we won’t be putting our families at risk. Once again, the new bipartisan infrastructure law is paying huge dividends — providing major investments that will mean stronger, healthier communities.”
