PFAS Meets Politics

PFAS Meets Politics

Wisconsin’s governor wants 125 million-dollars to deal with PFAS contamination across the state, even though he doesn’t want the new law that goes along with the money.

Governor Evers yesterday promised to veto the PFAS plan from Republican lawmakers. That plan would spend 125 million-dollars on grants to local communities so they can clean-up their drinking water. The governor likes that part of the law, but doesn’t like the piece that would hold landowners harmless if PFAS chemicals simply pass through their land. The governor wants to give the DNR the power to go after those landowners. The governor said lawmakers should give him the money as a compromise instead.
