Tell Congress to Vote YES on the Farm Bill!

Tomorrow the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the Farm Bill. This legislation is very important for our profession. The proposed bill includes several provisions that help to preserve the right of landscape professionals to use the tools that best work for the job. Specifically, the legislation:

  • Recognizes the exclusive role of states in regulating pesticides to help ward off local pesticide bans;
  • Improves the endangered species consultation and the pesticide registration process;
  • Reauthorizes the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA 4) for 7 years to ensure that EPA has the resources to register new pesticide products; and
  • Eliminates the duplicative National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting requirements for pesticides used in and near water.

We need you to contact your U.S. Representative today to urge them to support this important measure! It is imperative for you to let your Congressional representative understand why you support the Farm Bill and the negative ramifications for professional landscape businesses that are possible if they fail to act!
