In this article BNA takes a look at the pesticide industry’s willingness to work with the Environmental Protection Agency and congressional appropriators to ensure that the agency’s Office of Pesticide Programs can continue to collect pesticide registration service fees. CSPA’s Phil Klein is quoted.
From the article: “Phil Klein, executive vice president for legislative and public affairs at the Consumer Specialty Products Association, told BNA Dec. 12 the industry will work with appropriators in both the Senate and the House to ensure that “all sides are comfortable” with the appropriations level for EPA’s pesticide programs. Klein noted that the recent version of PRIA raised the appropriations threshold for the first time since the original version of PRIA was enacted in 2002.”
