As of this coming Thursday (july 15th), CT Public Act 09-56 goes into effect. This new law establishes that all schools in Connecticut, both public and private, with grades K-8, ban lawn-care pesticides on both their school grounds as well as on their playing fields as of July 1, 2010. It is important that all schools with grades K-8 be aware of this new law as well as the parents who have children who attend these schools.
