You’ve likely seen the news over the past several months about U.S. Environmental Protection Agency actions that undermine environmental protections, rather than strengthen them. NCAP is disturbed by this incongruous pattern. In this article we spotlight the many actions the EPA has recently taken to deregulate human and environmental protections from toxic pesticides. While federal action can put communities at great risk of harm from pesticides, we also want to showcase wins at the state level that have improved community protections and share what action you can take for this important cause.
