NGOs press US EPA on pesticide drift

A coalition of US farm worker, public health and environmental groups has filed suit against the US EPA, alleging that the Agency has failed to answer their petition calling for new safety standards to protect children from pesticide drift. The suit aims to force the agency to respond to the petition, filed by the groups in October 2009 (Agrow No 578, p 17). “It is not acceptable that our own government has so little regard for the health of our children,” says Janette Brimmer, an Earthjustice attorney representing the coalition “The government hasn’t even bothered to prepare a response to our requests.”
