New York Debates Bill to Protect Schoolchildren

As reported here on March 22, the state of New York is debating a bill that would ban cosmetic pesticides used to kill dandelions and other weeds around schools and daycare centers. As is typical, the chemical lawn care industry, including the lobby group known as Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment, is trying to stand in the way: http://www.legislativegazette.com/Articles-c-2010-04-05-66530.113122_Movement_on_pesticide_ban_bill_ignites_debate.html.
