Congressman Rodney Davis pushing a bill to help reauthorize the process of registering pesticides coming to the market. The bill has gained unanimous support so far at the committee level, and Davis hopes that the bipartisan support continues into the house and senate.

 

Congressman Davis appeared on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show, where he said this bill is unique in how it brought industry and environmentalist groups together in support of a common cause.

 

 

The process for the bill has moved forward smoothly, and Davis explained how those involved in this bill managed to make that happen.

 

 

Davis said this bill benefits both the environment, as well as industry, as it allows the EPA to continue to monitor what pesticides make it to market, and industry to continue to manufacture and sell pesticides to the parties that use it.

 

 

Davis stressed the importance of the bill, considering pesticide's use in agriculture.
