Support S.3283 – Protect America’s Children from Toxic Pesticides Act 


Dear ________,

As a member of the business community, I am writing to urge you to endorse the S.3283 Protect America’s Children from Toxic Pesticides Act (PACTPA), reintroduced by Senator Booker back in November. This bill would remove the usage of harmful pesticides in order to protect the public against the potential health risks associated with their usage including cancer and other neurological and developmental disorders. Each year, the United States uses over a billion pounds of pesticides accounting for approximately one fifth of worldwide use. In 2017 and 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency registered more than 100 pesticides containing ingredients considered to be dangerous. Research has also shown that there is a link between childhood cancer rates and the increase in toxic pesticides.

For the safety and health of our children and families, please endorse PACTPA and encourage your fellow senators to do so as well.
