Would you like your local government to ban Monsanto’s carcinogenic Roundup herbicide?
Your local government has had that power since 1991, when the Supreme Court ruled that the Federal law regulating the manufacture, sale and use of pesticides permitted local governments to impose more stringent regulations of their own.
Ever since, Monsanto has been pressuring Congress to strip local governments of that right.
Monsanto wants Congress to strip your community of the right to ban toxic pesticides.
Only Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, Utah and Vermont still let local governments regulate pesticides. But that’s seven states too many for Monsanto. Plus, the Biotech Bully is worried that number could grow if more states were to pass laws restoring local control over pesticides.
That’s why getting Congress to include Monsanto’s toxic trick in the Farm Bill is so important to Monsanto.
We have to fight back!
Contact your Congress members. Let them know that legislation that takes away local rights to regulate pesticides is undemocratic and dangerous!
