It's going to come sooner than later. The only problem that I can see happening though, is the fallout from congressmen supporting bans. Think about it. Look at BASF, Scotts, Lesco, DOW, etc. If they do bans on chemicals or really tighy restrictions, those companies will no longer support a particular person(s) in congress.
