PFAS Manufacturers Fee Work Group

Active dates:2023-2024

The commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency, in cooperation with the commissioners of revenue and management and budget, must establish a work group to review options for collecting a fee from manufacturers of PFAS in the state.

By February 15, 2024, the commissioner must submit a report to the chairs and ranking minority members of the legislative committees and divisions with jurisdiction over environment and natural resources with recommendations.


In 2021, the State of Minnesota released Minnesota’s PFAS Blueprint, a strategic approach to prevent, manage, and clean up PFAS pollution. In 2023, the legislature passed into law a sweeping set of statutory provisions concerning the handling and sale of PFAS-containing products within Minnesota. The law also contained a provision that establishes a “work group to review options for collecting a fee from manufacturers of PFAS in the state.” 

The Work Group met twice, on December 4, 2023, and on January 3, 2024. They submitted their report to the Legislature in February 2024. 


Work Group participants:

  • Lloyd Grooms, American Chemistry Council
  • Todd Hill, Hill Capitol Strategies/Sustainable PFAS Action Network
  • Craig Johnson, League of Minnesota Cities
