Renee Corea of New York vs. Bed bugs broke the news today that the EPA is holding a meeting on bed bugs on April 14th.
We have just received information, from our one and only contact at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that EPA is set to hold a public meeting on bed bugs on April 14 in Washington, DC.
We think this is a watershed event. The public health interest is clear and can no longer be ignored. No more dithering about bed bugs and their public health importance. This attention is utterly warranted and, in fact, overdue.
It’s really wonderful to see this happening.
I know you’ll want to follow up by reading the rest of the post over at New York vs. Bed Bugs.
And, New York City folks, you surely already know our big day is tomorrow (Tues. 2/24/2009), when the City Council is holding a public hearing on three bed bug bills.
If you can come, it starts at 1 pm at City Hall, directions here; if you are able to testify for 2 minutes, you can sign up on the spot.
If you can’t testify, just come out and support those who will be speaking. The more of us that show up, the better, because it makes a strong statement about how much New York City citizens and voters care about solving the bed bug problem in New York City.
More details, on the hearing tomorrow and on the bills under consideration, from New York vs. Bed Bugs.
