Brian Fitzpatrick lobbies for PFOS/PFOA health study funding

Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick appeared before a congressional subcommittee Thursday morning to request that Defense Department money be directed toward funding for a comprehensive health study of Bucks and Montgomery county residents affected by high levels of perfluorinated compounds, also known as PFOS and PFOA, found in drinking water. 

Fitzpatrick, R-8, also asked the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee to allocate money for the remediation effort of public and private wells contaminated by the compounds.
