Letter to the President on PFAS

July 27, 2022

President Biden:

"We urge the Biden administration to move swiftly to designate PFOA and PFOS, the two most studied “forever chemicals,” as hazardous substances under CERCLA, better known as the Superfund law.

In October 2021, you announced "accelerated efforts” across the government to tackle PFAS, including plans to propose PFOA and PFOS as hazardous substances. Your announcement reaffirmed your campaign pledge, in The Biden Plan to Secure Environmental Justice and Equitable Economic Opportunity, to designate PFOA and PFOS as hazardous substances, recognizing the contamination crisis caused by decades of unregulated releases of these toxic chemicals."
