Lilacs bloom outside the State House.

The Forest Society recently testified with our partners (read our letter here) in support of House Bill 1649 (read the bill here) — legislation that proposes to restrict the use of PFAS in certain consumer products sold in New Hampshire.

The passage of the bill marks a significant step in the efforts in New Hampshire to protect our water, soil and air resources and thereby limit the exposure citizens face from PFAS.

Representative Karen Ebel of New London is the prime sponsor of the bill and deserves recognition for her work to steer HB 1649 through the lengthy legislative process.
