California officials have announced “restrictions” on the use of brain-harming chlorpyrifos. But the new rules add up to very little in terms of on-the-ground protections for children across the state, or for rural families living near agricultural fields.
The agency regulating chlorpyrifos has taken over a decade to review this known neurotoxin, and has failed to put the health-protective policies that are needed in place.
It’s time for Governor Brown to step up and take this issue seriously, and protect California’s children, today.
Join us in telling Gov. Brown to phase out chlorpyrifos.
