The House passed HB 229 to ban chlorpyrifos–yay!! But unless the Senate votes to adopt the HB 229 version of the bill in the next 3 days, we will have to begin the process again in a special session later this year–oh
Act now! We have 1-2 days to urge the Senate Education, Health & Environmental Affairs (EHEA) Committee and the full Senate to pass the House version of the chlorpyrifos ban bill, HB 229 without any additional amendments, before an emergency adjournment on Wednesday. Find your Senator email here: http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/mgawebsite
Please send an email now to your Senator urging they vote to pass HB 229.
Help us get chlorpyrifos ban bill done, before the session recesses. Thank you!
