Luján Joins Colleagues to Launch PFAS Task Force

Task Force established to address the urgent threat of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), in order to better protect communities, including those surrounding Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico

Washington, D.C. – Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) has joined his colleagues to launch the bipartisan PFAS Task Force, with the goal of bringing PFAS clean-up to the forefront of the congressional agenda. In November of 2018, Cannon Air Force Base informed the New Mexico State Government that water from several wells on and off the Cannon Air Force Base (AFB) had been contaminated with PFAS.
