ARA Co-Signs Letter to Congress Rejecting Legislation Upending FIFRA

Mar 13 2023

ARA co-signs a letter to Congress opposing S. 269 because it would repeal decades of federal regulation and scientific progress, undermining the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), and the EPA's science-based evaluation of pesticide safety and oversight of pesticide registration use.

This legislation would jeapardize the continued availability and innovation of pesticide products by imposing unscientific and unbalanced process that could unnecessarily remove pest control options from those who need them to safely and efficiently grow crops, adopt conservation practices, control pathogens and disease vectors, and more.
