The Environmental Protection Agency has said they will not ban an insecticide widely used on farms and orchards, including in Washington state.
This comes after recommendations from EPA scientists last year to ban the chemical in question, a pesticide called chlorpyrifos.
Chlorpyrifos was banned years ago for use in most household products.
In recent years, environmental groups have been petitioning to have it removed from agricultural use too. They say it can harm children.
