U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, reintroduced bipartisan legislation this week to improve federal efforts to identify the public health effects of emerging contaminants such as per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances.

The bill also expedites analysis of these chemicals and provides support and resources to states dealing with the health challenges posed by these potentially harmful materials.
