PFAS chemicals are not regulated by the U.S. government so it is up to individual states to determine and regulate PFAS chemicals to protect their residents. Many states are not addressing the PFAS problem, but some are. Here are some state laws being proposed or enacted to help protect state residents by at least minimizing exposure to the dangers of PFAS.
