Kennedy: Bill Passed Today Will Protect Connecticut’s Children From Toxic Pesticides

Senate Bill 366 bans pesticide use on municipal playgrounds

“There is growing evidence that pesticides do far more harm than good to our communities, and Connecticut must act judiciously to minimize their impact,” said Senator Kennedy, Senate Chair of the Environment Committee. “By keeping pesticides off of playgrounds and school property, we are protecting those who are most susceptible to the health impacts of pesticide exposure. Notifying parents of any emergency application also helps parents make informed decisions on whether their children are exposed to pesticides.”
