AG Raúl Torrez seeks civil rights division to help children - Albuquerque  Journal


A lawsuit has been filed by New Mexico Attorney General Raul Torrez over the manufacture of those so-called “forever chemicals” in his state.

Torrez accused 21 companies of contributing to environmental contamination in his state and knowing for decades how dangerous the compounds are to humans.

“We have to step forward and try to protect our community … to hold corporations accountable who have for too long placed their bottom line and placed quarterly profits ahead of the interests of our community, over our natural environment and over public health,” Torrez said at a news conference reported the Associated Press.
