When Congressman Chris Pappas, D-NH, met with four women working hard to address PFAS contamination in the Seacoast and across the country, he promised to what he could do help in their fight.
Pappas met with Andrea Amico and Alayna Davis, co-founders of Testing for Pease, former state representative Mindi Messmer and Lindsey Carmichael of the New Hampshire Safe Water Alliance at Popovers in Portsmouth.
Pappas recently signed on to a new bipartisan task force on PFAS, formed in the House by Reps. Dan Kildee, D-Mich, and Brian Fitzpatrick, R-PA, to address the drinking water contamination attributed to toxic flourinated chemicals known as PFAS. With the federal government shutdown there has not been any real action yet from the task force, but Pappas said he hopes that changes soon and he pledged to work with the women.
