Online News-PMI Announces Legislator of the Year
November 9, 2004
The Plumbing Manufacturers Institute recognized Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO) as PMI Legislator of the Year at its Fall 2004 meeting. He led the fight against the "Lead Free Drinking Water Act of 2004," which PMI opposed as being based on arbitrary and unscientific lead content provisions, and ignored NSF 61, whose lead standard deliberately excluded endpoint devices for water that are not intended for human consumption.
