Calif. Groups Sue EPA over Rules on Pesticide Emissions

"A group of community organizations has sued the Environmental Protection Agency about new rules on pesticide emissions, saying the regulations do too little to protect public health."

"The suit, filed under the Clean Air Act, challenges the EPA's approval of the California Department of Pesticide Regulation's measures to reduce certain emissions from pesticides.

Attorneys for the San Francisco-based Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment filed the suit in federal court recently. The local Wishtoyo Foundation and Ventura Coastkeeper are on the list of petitioners."
