House File 2310


The act progresses a variety of measures to mitigate per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from the environment in the state of Minnesota. It provides $25 million to support public drinking water systems to treat PFAS contamination, creates “Amara’s Law” to restrict and later ban products containing PFAS for non-essential uses, bans Class B firefighting foam containing PFAS, requires the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to adopt water quality standards for several types of PFAS (PFOA, PFOS, PFNA, HFPO-DA, PFHxS, and PFBS), and directs the Minnesota Department of Public Health to create a new Health Risk Limit for PFOS.

The act also creates PFAS Reduction Grants that would encourage “industry and public entities to identify sources of PFAS entering facilities and to develop pollution prevention and reduction initiatives.” Projects in underserved communities are prioritized.
