Senate Amendment Threatens to Exempt Pesticide from Environmental Laws
Update (12/1/2011): Yesterday, Senators Crapo (R-ID) and Hagan (D-NC) began circulating a Dear Colleague letter asking for floor time for HR 872, a bill that would eliminate Clean Water Act permits for pesticides. Please tell your Senators NOT to sign the letter. Like many legislative battles, this is a long one. So far, the pro-pesticide interests have been unsuccessful in the Senate, but their efforts persist. Thanks to everyone who has taken action.
