Bayer, which acquired Monsanto last year, has lobbied hard to kill community pesticide bans, as have other chemical companies, including Dow and CropLife America.
Section 9101 of the House farm bill would block local control to protect children's safety from exposure to toxic pesticides where they play and go to school.
Section 9101 is opposed by the National League of Cities, National Pediatric Association, and the National Association of County Officials.
