On behalf of Sen. Ayer and myself, I want to share news on recent work in the Vermont Senate. As this is my first report, it’s a bit long. Future reports will provide briefer updates.
Here are some of the bills we’ve passed and issues we’re addressing:
S.10 provides for the extension of municipal water systems to homes whose drinking systems (wells and springs) have been poisoned with the potentially cancer-causing chemical PFOA. While many people know that this happened in Bennington, there are 14 towns in Vermont where PFOA has been found.
