ICYMI: Dem Senator Celebrates Infrastructure Funding To Address Dangerous Forever Chemicals

FAYETTEVILLE OBSERVER EDITORIAL: “People deserve to have confidence in the water they drink, and this strong action by the Biden-Harris administration positively impacts state efforts to protect water quality and public health.”

No family should have to worry if a loved one is safe drinking tap water. That is why Democrats from the legislature to the White House have been fighting to clean up “forever chemicals” like Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) toxins. North Carolina State Senator, Kirk deViere, who represents Cumberland County penned an op-ed celebrating the $10 billion in grants that President Biden and lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans passed as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This marks the single largest investment in water that the federal government has ever made. 

As Senator deViere reminds us, “the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and money we are already seeing flowing to North Carolina is a testament to what can get done when Democrats and Republicans come together to put people first.” Thanks to this investment, communities across North Carolina will be healthier and safer.
