Court tells US EPA to respond on chloryprifos by month end

A federal appeals court has ordered the US EPA to formally respond to a petition filed by environmentalists that calls on the Agency to ban the insecticide, chlorpyrifos. The EPA has until June 30th to tell the court if it intends to finalise the preliminary denial of the petition, according to a decision by the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The order is the latest twist in a long-running dispute between the EPA and two environmentalist groups, Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), over the future of chlorpyrifos.
