Maryland Votes for Animals Joins Team to Ban Toxic Pesticide

Thanks to the Baltimore Sun for a compelling Op Ed explaining the dangers of Chlorpyrifos and why Maryland must step in where the EPA has been forced to cease action. “In addition to causing childhood brain damage and being linked to ADHD, autism and pediatric cancer, the pesticide’s runoff from farm fields can damage Chesapeake Bay aquatic life, bees and other pollinators and an estimated 97% of all federally endangered or threatened species.” Maryland Votes for Animals will be actively working on getting this bill passed in 2020. Delegate Dana Stein has already announced that he will be reintroducing this bill again this session.
