EPA Announces New Worker Protection Proposal
Washington--The Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday announced that it will formally propose new standards to be used for workers applying pesticides. The current rules were put in place nearly 20 years ago. The proposed rule will be published in the Federal Register soon with comments accepted by the general public. Additional details may be found on EPA's website.
The American Farm Bureau Federation will be evaluating the proposal and sharing its analysis with state Farm Bureaus prior to commenting formally on the proposal.
