“Farmworkers Deserve Better Pesticide Rules”

Professor Raoul Liévanos co-authored an op-ed with with Lisa Arkin, executive director of Beyond Toxics, and David Vásquez, Associate Professor and Head of the UO English Department published in The Register Guard in December 2017. It is titled, “Farmworkers Deserve Better Pesticide Rules” and critiques the logic and process put forward by Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in its proposed “compliance alternative” to the 2015 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 100-foot pesticide application exclusion zone standard.
