Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
The Montgomery County Council in Maryland is proposing a ban on pesticide use on lawns, citing harmful health effects on people, pets, and waterways. The county would be only the second locality to ban pesticides in the country. Opponents say the rules are superfluous, given EPA and state regulation. The county has already passed rules limiting trans fats, e-cigarettes and pet stores supporting “puppy mills,” sparking debate about the role of local government in health and safety issues. We explore both sides of the debate.
