This webinar will include:

  4. An overview of the Biden administration’s plans to expand research and implement regulations surrounding PFAS, including EPA’s “PFAS Roadmap,” and the anticipated impact of such actions on future lawsuits against commercial PFAS users.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end of this webinar
