Joint Comments to NY DEC: Adopt ACT Rule

Environmental groups, health professionals, labor organizations, transportation and environmental justice advocates urge the NY Department of Environmental Conservation to adopt the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) Rule. The ACT rule is technically feasible and cost-effective today, and critical for protecting public health, addressing climate change, and developing New York’s clean energy economy. Further, adoption of the ACT rule is a crucial policy to achieve the state’s climate goals, codified in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (“CLCPA”), and was a recommendation from the Transportation Advisory Panel to the Climate Action Council as a way to reduce emissions from the transportation sector.

Organophosphate Petition

Earthjustice filed a petition along with a coalition of 10 health, community, and farmworker groups, filed a petition asking the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban neurotoxic organophosphate pesticides, which are prevalent in our food and water, and endanger farmworkers and their families. The EPA recently banned all food uses of chlorpyrifos, the most well-known organophosphate pesticide, but only one among a dangerous pesticide group. Chlorpyrifos is just one of over a dozen organophosphates the agency reauthorized for use in agricultural fields, even though they are acutely neurotoxic — meaning that people who are exposed at high doses over a brief period can experience severe neurological symptoms — and are linked to neurodevelopmental harm to fetuses and infants.
