EPA REVERSES COURSE ON PESTICIDE SAFETY TRAINING FOLLOWING A.G. UNDERWOOD LAWSUIT 

Last Month, A.G. Underwood Led a Multistate Suit Against the Trump Administration for Failing to Protect Farmworkers from Pesticide Poisoning

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood released the following statement:

“Last month, our office led a lawsuit against the EPA for purposefully denying farmworkers the tools they need to protect themselves and their families from poisonous pesticides.

Today, the EPA reversed course.

Again and again, the EPA has broken the law – and we’ve fought back and won. We won’t hesitate to do what’s necessary to protect the health and safety of all New Yorkers.”

Late last month, Attorney General Underwood led a multistate lawsuit against the Trump administration for its indefinite delay of a key requirement that provides improved training intended to better protect farmworkers, pesticide handlers, and their families from pesticide poisoning.

Today, the EPA announced that it will publish a notice in the Federal Register stating that the expanded pesticide safety training materials are available for use.
