CropLife America (CLA) president and CEO Jay Vroom provided testimony on behalf of the agricultural community and crop protection industry during last week's Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry hearing, which focused on the impact of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) regulation of agriculture.

The hearing, "Oversight Hearing to Examine the Impact of EPA Regulation on Agriculture," was organized as a result of CLA working cooperatively with Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, to ensure that all such regulatory decisions are based on up-to-date and sound science, the rule of law and a consistent and transparent due process. Other witnesses providing oral testimony at the hearing included Lisa Jackson, administrator of the U.S. EPA, Rich Hillman, vice president of the Arkansas Farm Bureau and Jere White, executive director of the Kansas Corn Growers Association.
