Thank you to everyone who helped get a new pesticide bill passed in CT. The bill will ban chlorpyrifos from golf courses, where it is still widely used in CT despite the EPA's banning it from use on food products. This pesticide is notorious for its extreme toxicity. It is known to harm children's developing brains and is listed as one of five pesticides most toxic to bees. The restrictions on pollinator-killing neonics were stricken from the bill before the House vote, so PLEASE JOIN US NEXT YEAR WHEN WE RAISE A NEW BILL IN CT TO RESTRICT NEONICS! We cannot do this work without you.
