Chemical Collections

NY Times EPA Collection


This set of documents was obtained by the New York Times through state public records requests and FOIA requests during investigations into the EPA's apparent shift on toxic chemicals. This shift includes the 2017 decision by the EPA to reject a decade-old petition to ban chlorpyrifos, a widely used pesticide, as well as organizational changes at the EPA including the nomination of Michael L. Dourson, frequent consultant to the chemical manufacturers and the American Chemistry Council.
