Finally, we have a groundbreaking opportunity to radically reform pesticide policy in the United States!
If passed, the Protect America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act (PACTPA) would mean a comprehensive overhaul of federal pesticide regulations.
It would put restrictions on pesticide use and registration (including bans on several of the most toxic pesticides such as organophosphates, neonicotinoids and paraquat), and it would create new safety protections for farmworkers.
This legislation is a powerful and transformative opportunity to protect our especially-vulnerable children and farmworkers (as well as all people!), pollinators, and other wildlife from the dangerous effects of toxic pesticides.
TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress: Pass the Protect America's Children from Toxic Pesticides Act!Read more
