  • State Bill Would Expand Pesticide Restrictions

    HARTFORD (AP) — Connecticut state lawmakers are considering whether to expand restrictions on pesticide use to include more public places like parks, playgrounds and municipal greens.

    Legislators say they drafted a bill to shield children from toxic lawn pesticides. The General Assembly’s Environment Committee has scheduled a public hearing on the proposal and other bills for 1 pm Monday at the Legislative Office Building.
