FPA Signs Coalition Letter Opposing and Requesting Amendments to LD 1503 to Maine’s Committee on Environment and Natural Resources

We are writing to respectfully oppose and request amendments to LD 1503 related to PFAS reporting requirements and product bans. The legislation as written could eventually ban thousands of products from sale and transport of those products into the state. It would be the broadest ban on products containing PFAS in the nation and would have far reaching negative consequences on nearly every sector of the economy including aerospace, autos, alternative energy, healthcare, building and construction, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and agriculture. No other state has even considered such an extreme and unworkable approach to this broad and important class of chemistry.
