House Ag Republicans Want Hearing on EPA's Crop Protection
USAgNet - 08/08/2022
House Agriculture Committee Ranking Republican Member Rep. Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-PA), Vice Republican Leader, Rep. Rick Crawford (R-AR), and the Ranking Republican Member of each Subcommittee, penned a letter to Committee Chairman
David Scott (D-GA) urging the Committee to schedule a hearing with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan regarding the agency's handling of crop protection products.
"The Biden EPA has already made steps towards restricting or canceling chlorpyrifos, Enlist, glyphosate, atrazine, sulfoxaflor, DCPA, diuron, organophosphates, neonicotinoids, and many more," the lawmakers write.
They say the move has 'eroded public trust' in the regulatory process and is undermining confidence in the scientific integrity of the EPA.
