Bill Summary Details

Brownfield Site Rehabilitation (Support)

SB 1054 (Broxson) addresses the regulation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The bill requires rulemaking by the Department of Environmental Protection to adopt cleanup standards for PFAS and abates cleanup enforcement actions pending adoption of DEP rules. The bill provides liability protection to owners and operators of PFAS-impacted sites if they are cooperating with DEP on site assessment and upon signing a “voluntary cleanup agreement” with DEP. It directs DEP to establish a PFAS assessment and cleanup program and requires DEP to provide an annual report to the governor and Legislature. (O’Hara)
