Tomorrow's Atrazine Hearing

Tomorrow, Feb 23 at 2:00 pm in room 413 of the Stratton Building in Springfield, the House of Representatives Environmental Health Committee will hear the testimony of Dr. Tyrone Hayes of the University of California Berkeley.  Dr. Hayes lectures frequently against the use of atrazine despite the fact that his research has been discredited by USEPA.  The USEPA is on record stating that Dr. Hayes' "data are insufficient," his work is "scientifically flawed" and "none of Hayes' laboratory studies on atrazine were conducted in accordance with standard protocols."  IFCA and other members of the agricultural industry will be present at the hearing and we are working with the legislators on the committee to share the truth about Dr. Hayes' agenda, the facts about sound science and the proven safety record of atrazine.  This hearing is open to the public, and if you would like to see the members who are on the Environmental Health Committee, please click here
