Students and recent grads led this effort by engaging tens of thousands of residents statewide to urge Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell -- along with other state leaders -- to take action on this pressing issue.

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.

The Clean Power Plan was set to cut carbon pollution from the electric power sector by 32 percent by 2030. At a time when even steeper cuts are necessary to avert the worst impacts of climate change, this new replacement plan is expected to slow the power sector’s transition to clean, renewable energy and could lead to an increase in emissions from nearly 30 percent of coal plants.
