Barn Media 10-27: Senate Not Likely to Bring Relief from Pesticide Permits Before Deadline

The deadline for EPA to start issuing permits for pesticide spraying in or near water is now less than a week away. The U.S. House has already approved a measure to ban the court-ordered permitting – but it’s been held up in the Senate Environment Committee by California’s Barbara Boxer and Maryland’s Ben Cardin. Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley doesn’t expect anything to change by Monday – the October 31st deadline. He says Boxer and Cardin don’t seem to understand the weight of their failure to act.
