Trump EPA declines to ban pesticide that Obama had proposed outlawing

From @ Martha Roberts:

“[A]fter mounting scientific evidence that prenatal exposure can pose risks to fetal brain and nervous system development” EPA proposed in 2015 to ban all uses of chlorpyrifos on food.
Today EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt decided to reverse course. Information is still emerging but it appears this pesticide will continue to be allowed for use on crops including broccoli, strawberries and citrus.
