Pa. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, Michigan Dem push EPA to regulate PFAS in drinking water

A Republican lawmaker from Pennsylvania is teaming with one of his Democratic colleagues to press the incoming head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for more clarity on the agency’s plans to regulate a class of chemicals found in drinking water that are raising serious public health concerns.

U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, who represents Bucks County’s 1st Congressional District, has joined with Democratic U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee, of Michigan, to ask Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., to press incoming EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to more clearly articulate the agency’s plans to regulate chemicals known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS.
