Categories: Allor News The Michigan House today approved a resolution introduced by state Rep. Sue Allor ensuring effective use of state funds provided to address an emerging water contaminant.In December, the Legislature agreed to allocate $23.2 million to provide testing, monitoring and technical assistance at more than a dozen sites across Michigan where per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been found in recent years, including the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Oscoda and the Combat Readiness Training Center in Alpena.Allor, who chairs the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Natural Resource, said her resolution will provide the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team formed by Gov. Rick Snyder with a scientific framework that ensures public tax dollars are used in an impactful way.“The Michigan Constitution says the health and welfare of all residents is of primary public concern. That’s an obligation I take very seriously, both as an elected representative and as a former nurse,” said Allor, of Wolverine. “PFAS contamination poses a serious public health concern. It’s critical that we establish a good, sound plan to guide the state’s effort as we move forward.”Allor’s resolution calls on the PFAS Action Response Team to:Create a scientific advisory committee made up of scientific experts with various backgrounds.Evaluate the Environmental Protection Agency’s current drinking water health advisory level of 70 parts per trillion.Review the information available on PFAS and conduct a non-biased scientific risk assessment to determine the extent of contamination and who is responsible for its presence.Use the risk assessment to recommend a logical action plan to guide agencies’ efforts going forward.“The advisory committee will be made up of extremely qualified individuals who will help the PFAS Action Response Team focus on the scientific aspects of this issue,” Allor said. “It will play an important role guiding our response to PFAS contamination in the future.”### 06Feb House approves Rep.
