Hansen seeks funding for blood tests

Marinette, Wisconsin has become one of the nation’s hot spots in the fight against polyflouroalkyl substances, more commonly known as PFAs. Trace amounts of the compounds can lead to far-ranging health effects for human beings and wildlife that come into contact with PFAs. State Senator Dave Hansen says it is time to take stock of the consequences.


Hansen says Wisconsin lags behind states like West Virginia, Michigan, and Minnesota in addressing the problem. He is not sure if there is one test that can give results for all of the potential complications or if residents would have to do a series of examinations. Hansen has long advocated for a tougher stance on PFA contamination by state government.
