The Portable Fuel Container Safety Act of 2019 (H.R. 806/S.1640) establishes standards for installing flame arrestors on portable fuel containers to prevent serious burn injuries. The ABA has advocated for the passage of this bill at the National Leadership Conferences for four years. Originally introduced in 2016 by Congressman Mike Thompson (D-CA), the bill is a direct result of years of advocacy efforts from the ABA and other members of the burn community.
