[GreenYes] Action - Notice to parents when Pesticide Use in Schools
From Daily Grist July 19, 2001

EXTERMI-NATION
U.S. House Republicans are threatening to exterminate a proposal that 
would require school districts to notify parents of pesticide use on 
school grounds.  Senate leaders added the measure to President Bush's 
education bill after consulting with educators, environmentalists, 
and representatives of the pesticide industry.  Some pesticide 
manufacturers and school officials argue, however, that the measure 
would discourage pest control and increase costs and legal liability 
at schools.  More than 30 states have similar pesticide-notification 
regulations on the books.
