Though Clean Water Action has been encouraged by bipartisan efforts to pass coronavirus relief and a law banning certain trichloroethylene (TCE) uses, there are many other public health priorities that were left unfinished
Clean Water Action and our allies have led efforts during this year’s General Assembly session to address toxic per and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances by pressing for legislation to study the occurrence of these chemicals in Virginia’s public drinking water, and to address sources of human exposure.
The United States Congress has a once in a generation opportunity to invest in our future. The Build Back Better Act currently being crafted and debated is the last, best chance for the U.S. to do our part to avert the worst impacts of climate change.
One of our biggest priorities is to ensure that everyone has access to clean, safe, and affordable water and sanitation in their home. No one should be unable to wash their hands during a pandemic.
