Tell your Senators to legally BAN chlorpyrifos since Scott Pruitt cancelled the EPA scheduled ban. Chlorpyrifos is a toxic pesticide that harms children’s brains. It has been linked to serious health effects in young children when their mothers were exposed during pregnancy, including nervous system damage, autism, ADHD and lower IQs. Chlorpyrifos was scheduled to be banned because of significant evidence of its toxicity. But, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt canceled the scheduled ban. Senator Udall, N.M. is trying to override Pruitt’s decision. He has just introduced a bill (S.1624) that would BAN chlorpyrifos. Ask your Senators to take action and BAN the pesticide once and for all!  Contact your Senators to support this bill.
