Statement on Legislature's Failure to Act on GenX

RALEIGH

Today, Noelle Talley, Deputy Communications Director for Governor Roy Cooper, shared the following statement on the legislature's failure to act on GenX:

"It’s disgraceful that after months of stalling, Republican legislators have gone home without doing anything to protect clean drinking water for North Carolina families. State environmental experts continue to hold Chemours accountable and are using all available resources to track the spread of GenX, and the latest notice of violation announced today shows the urgency. People in the Cape Fear region have a right to be angry that legislative leaders have failed to do their duty and give state scientists the tools they need to deal with GenX and other emerging contaminants."
