2020 Legislative Session Update
As expected the House and Senate are handling Budget and Covid related bills and issues. The report below shows the bills we are tracking, but thus far most action has been related to continuation of government. We'll continue to monitor. There were two bills introduced in the House and Senate in regards to studying PFAS, which at some point could impact firefighter gear and foam, but these are general EPA bills and do not directly mention firefighter equipment or foam. We'll continue to monitor this issue. Hopefully a compromise can be found that removes these harmful carcinogens without impacting firefighter safety.
