Pesticide Policy Coalition Hill Outreach

NPMA, in partnership with the Pesticide Policy Coalition (PPC), visited several House representative offices, including Democratic Representatives Michael San Nicolas (Guam), Bill Pascrell (NJ-09), Abby Finkenauer (IA-01), Thomas Suozzi (NY-03) and Sean Casten (IL-06). The members were briefed on the importance of relying on EPA and scientific data to make pesticide decisions in accordance with the federal statute; Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). All of the offices were receptive of the importance of pesticides to our industry to help us protect the integrity of structures and human health from harmful pests that transmit disease and contaminate food.
