Bill Tracker for Chemical Prioritization / Disclosure / Phase-out
AB 1817: Prohibits, beginning January 1, 2024, any person from distributing, selling, or offering for sale in the state any textile articles that contain regulated PFAS, and requires a manufacturer to use the least toxic alternative when replacing regulated PFAS in textile articles to comply with these provisions.
AB 2247: Requires the Department of Toxic Substances Control to work with the Interstate Chemicals Clearinghouse to establish a publicly accessible reporting platform to collect information about PFAS and products. Requires manufacturers to disclose PFAS and other information on the publicly accessible reporting platform.
HF 2063: Prohibits the sale of upholstered furniture that contains flame retardant chemicals. Prohibits the sale of food packaging, class B firefighting foam, and firefighting personal protective equipment that contains a perfluoroalkyl or polyfluoroalkyl substance that was intentionally added. Requires state department to conduct a study investigating PFAS and finding safe alternative food packaging materials.
H 4818: Prohibits the sale or distribution of the following products to which PFAS substances have been intentionally added or, if not intentionally added, in which PFAS substances are present and measurable by testing for total fluorine at a level greater than 1 part per million: child passenger restraints, cookware, fabric treatments, personal care products, rugs and carpets, upholstered furniture, and children’s products.
SB 2049: Prohibits PFAS from being used in food packaging and would also require that any carpeting or clothing containing PFAS manufactured or sold in this state carry a warning label. Violations would be punishable by a fine of one thousand dollars ($1000) for each offense. This act would take effect on January 1, 2023.
H 694: Establishes multiple restrictions on the use of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in the State. The bill would prohibit the intentional use of 10 PFAS in products to be sold in Vermont. In addition, the bill would prohibit landfills, refineries, and other industries from bringing industrial leachate to wastewater treatment plants.
AB 652: Bans the entire class of PFAS from a wide array of “juvenile” products including booster seats, changing pads, infant carriers, nursing pillows, and crib mattresses. The bill would require a manufacturer to use the least toxic alternative when replacing PFAS chemicals in a juvenile product. (Adopted in 2021)
HB 19-1279: Prohibits the sale of PFAS-containing firefighting foam in certain circumstances, prohibits the use of PFAS foam for training, requires manufacturers to disclose if protective equipment they produce includes PFAS, and requires the Department of Health to conduct a survey to determine the amount of PFAS foam currently held, used, and disposed by fire departments. (Adopted in 2019)
HB 1348: Establishes a regulatory scheme that requires disclosure of certain chemical information for products used in downhole oil and gas operations. The discloser must also provide the commission with a declaration that the chemical product contains no intentionally added perfluoroalkyl or polyfluoroalkyl chemicals. (Adopted in 2022)
LD 1503/ HP 1113: Requires manufacturers to report products containing intentionally added per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Prohibits the sale of products containing intentionally added per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Establishes a “currently unavoidable” framework in the long term. (Adopted in 2021)
SB 5135: Directs the Department of Ecology to identify and take regulatory action on consumer products that are a significant source of chemicals that are a concern for sensitive populations and species. Prioritizes PCBs, PFAS, organohalogen flame retardants, phthalates, and phenolic compounds (BPA, APEs) for initial consideration. (Adopted in 2019)
