Legislative Alert - PERC Ban Introduced- HB 4083

A proposed piece of legislation has been introduced that would phase out the useage of PERC with an ultimate ban being implemented in December of 2028.  House Bill 4083 was introduced by Representative Julie Rogers, 41st House District, and has been referred to the Natural Resources, Environment, Tourism and Outdoor Recreation Committee.  This piece of legislation has moved very quickly since being introduced on February 14, there was a hearing on Thursday, March 9 which was for testimony only, no vote was taken.  Board Member Steve Fry and myself gave testimony at the hearing opposing this legislation as introduced.  We are waiting to hear from Representative Rogers office to set up a meeting to discuss the proposed legisation.  

We will be sending out additional information next week that will include talking points, as we would encourage all drycleaners to reach out to their legislator and to the Natural Resources Committee and express opposition to the legislation.
