James V. Aidala Quoted by The Washington Post in “Trump has kept this controversial pesticide on the market. Now its biggest manufacturer is stopping production”

On February 6, 2020, comments by James V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), were featured in a Washington Post article about Corteva Agriscience’s decision to stop producing the pesticide chlorpyrifos.

Jim Aidala, a consultant for Corteva who served as EPA’s associate administrator for pesticides and toxics under Bill Clinton, said in an interview that because the Obama administration made a decision on chlorpyrifos just before Trump took office, the science it relied on “never got fully vetted.” The Agriculture Department also raised concerns about the methodology EPA scientists had used in determining that chlorpyrifos posed serious health risks.
