Protect Against Paraquat Act of 2019 – Original Co-sponsorship Opportunity

Please join me as an original cosponsor of the Protect Against Paraquat Act of 2019. Paraquat is a highly toxic herbicide that’s already banned in over 30 other countries; chronic exposure leads to neurodegradation, heart failure, kidney failure,
liver failure, and lung scarring. Acute exposure leads to almost certain death with no antidote. The purpose of this act is to guard the safety of our communities and eliminate the use of paraquat in the U.S. By switching to less toxic herbicides, we can ensure
the safety of our agricultural workers.
