Abstract/Contents:Discusses the Food Quality Protection Act, which could end or cut the use of organophosphates, including Guthion, "the bug-killer that growers use most often on Northwest apples." Profiles Lynn Goldman, the EPA assistant administrator for pesticides and toxic substances, who helped achieve political action on a bill "intended to keep children safe from pesticides." Discusses the impact that the FQPA had on the EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs, which had to enforce it. Also discusses the lack of enforcement of the section dealing with extra protection for children. Details pesticide companies reactions to the Food Quality Protection Act, and their interactions with federal politicians.
