II.  Members of the committee shall receive mileage at the legislative rate when attending to the duties of the committee.

3  Duties.  The committee shall study and make recommendations relative to requiring vendors to label their products as containing PFAS so persons can determine if they need special disposal processes or give them the option of purchasing products that do not contain PFAS.  The committee shall also determine if a list of such labeled products and their buyers should be made available to the department of environmental services to allow the department to know where PFAS are used and to notify municipal waste operators of their presence.

4  Chairperson; Quorum.  The members of the study committee shall elect a chairperson from among the members.  The first meeting of the committee shall be called by the first-named house member.  The first meeting of the committee shall be held within 45 days of the effective date of this section.  Four members of the committee shall constitute a quorum.
