AGC Urges Caution as House Considers PFAS Legislation

November 21, 2019

As the U.S. House may consider a suite of bills to spur action on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)—a large and diverse group of chemicals—AGC and industry allies urged policymakers to rely on sound science before enacting a one-size-fits-all approach for properly dealing with the chemicals. Treating all PFAS substances the same, without any regard to science, would lead to unnecessary liability for contractors and result in wide-spread and possibly unnecessary remediation of soil and water. AGC urges that any federal actions on this subject address specific PFASs and take a consistent approach to establish risk-based standards.
