Stop California's Pro-Pesticide PIER Process

The PIER process would provide an inappropriate "one size fits all" approach to species control that fails to prioritize the LEAST toxic methods, including harmful pesticides, and does not evaluate the risk of such approaches to vulnerable populations, such as children. It also could limit public feedback and information regarding pesticide use, especially on a case by case basis.
For all these reasons, a coalition of environmental and health advocates are calling for a revised approach to pest control that would not only be less toxic, but less costly for the state.
