When: Thursday, March 8, 2012 1:00 pm
Where: Legislative Office Building, Hartford, CT Rom 1A
Why: Connecticut's landmark law banning the use of toxic pesticides on elementary and middle school fields in Connecticut is in danger of being eliminated. Pro-pesticide forces have introduced legislation that would roll back protections for children's health and once again permit the use of even the most toxic pesticides on school fields.
