The bill requires the EPA to designate all PFAS as hazardous substances within one year of enactment. It also makes PFAS eligible for cleanup funds under the EPA Superfund law and requires polluters to pay for remediation.

Rep. Annie Kuster said the bipartisan bill has a good chance of moving forward but fears proposed EPA budget cuts may threaten it. “Hopefully it doesn’t mean they don’t care about the quality of drinking water if we can pass it in the House and Senate in a bipartisan way,” she said.
