"Lawmakers Grill Manufacturers Over 'Forever Chemicals' Contamination"

"Lawmakers on Tuesday expressed frustration with major manufacturers behind chemicals that have contaminated drinking water across the country, demanding answers on how they plan to deal with toxic 'forever chemicals.'"

Members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee grilled company representatives over what they say was decades of awareness of the dangers of their products and their role helping spread fluorochemicals known as PFAS.

“You have played a part in this national emergency. You have sickened our first responders and members of the military, and I don’t know how you sleep at night,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.) told representatives for 3M, Dupont and Chemours."
