ASTA Opposes Proposed Amendments to FIFRA

  • On January 13, 2022

On January 10, ASTA joined an industry-led letter to Capitol Hill in opposition of S. 3283, Senator Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) bill to amend The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and alter how pesticides are regulated. The proposed legislation would repeal decades of federal regulation and scientific progress and jeopardize the continued availability and innovation of pesticide products. The more than 350 organizations on the letter represent a wide range of the industry who rely on the availability of safe and effective pesticides in diverse settings to produce America’s food and specialty crops, fiber, and biofuel and to protect our public health and infrastructure.
