Sen. Lee Commends DEQ for Finally Taking Action Against Chemours

Raleigh, N.C. – Sen. Michael Lee (R-New Hanover) issued the following statement Thursday:

“For months, we have called on Gov. Cooper’s administration to do the right thing, and we are glad they’re finally taking the needed steps to hold Chemours accountable. The news reports that Chemours deliberately withheld information about yet another spill of GenX that could endanger our drinking water are shocking and show the same disturbing lack of transparency as the company’s repeated refusal to testify at our public hearings. We agree that referring this matter to the State Bureau of Investigation is the appropriate next step.”
