Delgado is a member, as are Reps. Peter King, R-N.Y., Dan Kildee, D-Mich., Fred Upton, R-Mich., Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., and Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M.

Delgado is also co-sponsoring legislation that would require the Environmental Protection Agency to “designate per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980.”

The bill was introduced in the House and has been referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.

After his first 30 days in office, Delgado said having Hickey join him for the State of Union reminds him of what is important in his new job.

“Why having Michael here is so inspiring for me is that you have to stay engaged with the people you serve,” Delgado said. “You have to stay tied to that community.”
