The future of PFAS regulation in Wisconsin is up in the air, after a pair of Republican Lawmakers yesterday accused the governor of negotiating in bad faith.
State Senators Eric Wimberger and Robert Cowles yesterday said Governor Evers wants to have it all his way when it comes to rules for PFAS chemicals. The senators say they’ve been talking for months with the governor’s office, and have agreed to about 80 percent of what the governor wants. A senate committee yesterday approved the PFAS rules that Wimberger and Cowles have written, but Governor Ever’s office said he’s not on board with a plan. T
he senators say without the governor’s support, the new PFAS rules will simply die.
