2-14-19 Michigan Chemistry Council Welcomes EPA PFAS Action Plan and Calls for Further Federal Leadership

LANSING, MI, February 14, 2019 - The Michigan Chemistry Council (MCC) today welcomed the release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Action Plan.

“The MCC looks forward to reviewing this comprehensive action plan and its significance for our state,” said MCC Executive Director John Dulmes. “While Michigan continues to be a trailblazer in many areas of PFAS response, we believe the EPA and other federal agencies are ultimately best-positioned to develop consistent science-based standards, test methods, and guidance. We encourage the EPA to continue to work with the state of Michigan, our members of Congress, and other experts to advance constructive policies as well as public confidence in these actions.”

The Michigan Chemistry Council, established in 1967, represents Michigan’s chemical manufacturers, formulators and distributors. Chemistry is one of Michigan’s largest manufacturing sectors, supporting more than 80,000 Michigan jobs and directly impacting more than 96% of all manufactured goods.
