ARA working to limit ammonium nitrate rule
Gupton concluded in that letter with what he hoped the DHS would do to meet what Congress initially expected.
“ARA supports a common sense, fair and simplified federal registration system for solid ammonium nitrate fertilizer in order to ensure the product’s continued availability for sale, purchase and use by America’s agricultural industry. ARA agrees with the comments submitted by The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) on October 3, 2011, regarding the collection of information. ARA strongly recommends DHS implement the AN Security Program in a manner similar as programs operating in several states such as Oklahoma and South Carolina. ARA believes minimal costs will be incurred by taxpayers or industry if the program remains streamlined and focused only on the AN facility and AN purchaser and solid ammonium nitrate fertilizer, not mixtures.”
