The Latest On: Environmental Protection Agency
Jonathan Kalmuss-Katz, Attorney, Toxic Exposure & Health Program, Earthjustice: "None of the first 10 risk evaluations satisfied EPA’s statutory obligations or provided a complete and accurate picture of the chemicals’ true risks."
Patti Goldman, Managing Attorney, Northwest Office, Earthjustice: “If EPA finds risk, it will look at benefits to growers. ... You get to the end, and EPA says the company is willing to use a little less, or use it a little less often, or they’ll put a little bit of a buffer around schools, or require some protective clothing, and then they’ll just say we find the risk is less than the benefits. It’s unprincipled.”
