TAKE ACTION! Please contact Senate President Sweeney and Senate Environment Committee members today. Thank them for posting the bill on Monday and urge them to oppose any and all weakening amendments. The bill has already been compromised three times - ask them to ensure S1143/A2412 passes out of committee in its current form and becomes law before the spring.
Lawn pesticides have been linked in scientific studies to an increased risk of cancer, learning disabilities, asthma, birth defects, and reproductive problems.
We need to send NJ legislators the message that ignoring children’s health is unacceptable. We can maintain healthy, green playgrounds and ball fields without toxic pesticides. Sustainable non-toxic lawn/field care methods, cost less over time, are effective, and are healthier for both the landscape and our children.
