Marc Steiner discusses pesticides in Maryland’s environment in light of the release of two reports – a federal report detailing the prevalence of pesticides in the Chesapeake Bay and a Maryland Environmental Health Network report identifying the impact of pesticides on our children’s health- and the Pesticide Information Act requiring pesticide applicators to submit records of their pesticide use (they are already required to keep at their place of business) to a cnetralized state database so that Bay and public health experts can assess occurrence and ipmacts of pesticides on public health and the Bay.
