Thousands of sites across Michigan are contaminated by a variety of chemicals — from PFAS to dioxane to the now infamous hexavalent chromium — largely due to bad actors and corporations willingly polluting Michigan’s air, water and land for the sake of profit.

  • Current statute does not adequately hold these polluters responsible, often only requiring fines which amount to a slap on the wrist and providing no recourse for Michiganders who discover contamination years after a company has shut down.
  • House Democrats have an 8 bill package to finally bring corporate polluters to justice, to hold them accountable for their negligence, and to ensure they pay for the damage they’ve caused.
