More than 330 agricultural and environmental stakeholder groups called on Congress in a letter sent on Nov. 14 to reaffirm that states will not impose pesticide regulation in a manner that contradicts federal findings.

Signers of the letter, which includes Western Growers, expressed their concern that some states have begun to regulate pesticides in a manner that could impose additional labeling and packaging requirements that contradict decades of scientific guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
