House Bill 20-1119
State Government Regulation of Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances
This act does not directly relate to PFAS in drinking water; however, it does require the Solid and Hazardous Waste Commission to promulgate rules for both a certificate of registration for any facility, fire department, or lessee subject to federal rules and regulations that uses or stores PFAS in its operations and for standards for the capture and disposal of PFAS. It prohibits the use of class B firefighting foam that contains intentionally added PFAS in certain aircraft hangars beginning January 1, 2023 and addresses when PFAS may be used for firefighting foam system testing. The act appropriates $43,836 from the hazardous waste service fund to the Department of Public Health and Environment for use by the hazardous materials and waste management division.
