A scientific panel convened by Gov. Rick Snyder said Michigan’s standard for protecting drinking water from certain toxic chemicals may not be strong enough. The Michigan PFAS Science Advisory Committee made the finding in a report issued Tuesday. Snyder convened the panel of nationally recognized experts on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are found in firefighting foam, some foods and a variety of household products.
