Minnesota and New York Introduce Additional Legislation to Limit the Use of PFAS in Consumer Products

As previously reported, ISPA has been tracking a large number of bills which limit or regulate the use of PFAS in consumer products.  Two new efforts are notable.  First, manufacturers and sellers in Minnesota of products containing intentionally added PFAS would pay a 50% tax on the gross revenue earned from those sales under identical bills MN SF 2842 and HF 2586.  Second, in New York, S 5648 would (among other things) prohibit the sale of textile goods (defined to include bedding) and fabric treatments, which contain intentionally added or measurable amounts of PFAS, effective January 1, 2025.

ISPA will continue to monitor these efforts and report on significant developments.
