Wheat growers push for passage of pesticide bill

The National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) is requesting support from members of Congress for H.R. 935, the Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act. H.R. 935 would eliminate the requirement for a Clean Water Act National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit when applying pesticides. 

Due to a 2009 court decision in National Cotton Council v. EPA, certain pesticide applications require an NPDES permit in addition to regulation through the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

Farmers and pesticide applicators apply based on label rates and the label is the law. Additional environmental protections do not result from the NPDES permit, only additional paperwork and possible citizen lawsuits and fines of up to $37,500 per day. 

NAWG encourages all growers to contact their representatives in support of H.R. 935 to eliminate this unnecessary permit. NAWG policy supports passage of H.R. 935.
