PennEnvironment members and activists delivered a clean air petition with 6,000 signatures to Allegheny County Council. The petition called on County Council to work with the Health Department to rein in dangerous emissions from major air polluters by setting health-based emissions limits, closing the backlog of expired and un-issued permits and enforcing strict penalties for companies that break the law. 

News Release | Environment America

The U.S. House approved a host of provisions today to address widespread drinking water contamination from toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The annual defense spending bill would phase out the military’s use of PFAS-containing firefighting foams by 2025 — a major source of drinking water contamination. The bill would also designate all PFAS chemicals as hazardous substances under Superfund and toxic pollutants under the Clean Water Act, spurring cleanup and reducing discharges into waterways, respectively.
