NPMA Farm Bill hits House Floor in May
Last week, House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX) indicated the Agriculture and Nutrition Act, H.R. 2 (the “Farm Bill”) may go before the full U.S. House of Representatives as early as the week of May 14th. The debate continues to be extremely partisan and heavily focused on the Supplemental Nutrition Program, but this week those that fundamentally oppose pesticides have begun to make some noise, and we can’t let that go unchecked! We have to show our strength in numbers and tell our story about why we need to fix pesticide laws and regulations to better protect public health.
NPMA is working within the broader pesticide industry to urge the passage of the Farm Bill with pesticide regulatory reform provisions contained in Title IX of the Farm Bill. If you participate before Friday at 12:00 EDT, you will be eligible to win a $100 visa gift card. We will randomly draw two names out of all those that participated. Forward this message onto all of your friends and colleagues. Even if you already participated last week, please participate again to urge your Representative to pass the Farm Bill!
