Washington, D.C. — In response to news that the Trump EPA has contradicted its own scientists’ findings  that the pesticide chlorpyrifos can lead to serious health problems including stunting brain development in children, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Deputy Legislative Director Madeleine Foote:

“This blatant disregard for the health of our children and families is absolutely disgusting. Instead of listening to scientific experts, including its own agency scientists, the EPA only has ears for the wishes of giant chemical companies and other polluters. This administration continues to sacrifice our public health, particularly the health of communities of color, on the mantle of corporate profits. This administration is sick.”
