Tell Congress it’s time to take EPA back
As the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scott Pruitt is making decisions that ignore science, threaten the health of families and benefit giant corporations. This is unacceptable.
Pruitt has already rolled back, delayed or undermined more than 50 health and environmental safeguards. He reversed a planned ban of the brain-harming insecticide chlorpyrifos. This decision means millions of farm workers, their children and rural families will continue to be exposed to 7-8 million pounds of this brain-harming insecticide every single year. In addition, at Monsanto’s request, the EPA gave the go-ahead for continued use of Monsanto’s herbicide dicamba next season while farmers reel from 3.6 million acres of crop losses it caused.
