On Thursday, the Wisconsin PFAS Action Council held a meeting to review proposed initiatives that were included in the final 2021-23 budget. Of the proposed budget initiatives, the collection and disposal of fire fighting foam program was the only one included in the budget which allocates $1 million in continuing appropriation. This initiative works to collect and dispose of PFAS-containing fire fighting foam. Separate from the PFAS action council's initiatives, $5 million was awarded to the UW Fresh Water Collaborative which the council will continue to work with on PFAS-related issues.
