|Subject:||House Resolution urging Federal and State agencies to use science-based data when evaluating crop protection methods|
|In the near future I intend to introduce a resolution encouraging the use of peer-reviewed, science-based data to assess the impacts and the regulation of agricultural technologies.
A sustainable agricultural system in our nation is critical to the continued production of food, feed and fiber. The availability of modern agricultural technologies such as precision farming equipment, crop protection chemistries, genetically engineered or enhanced traits, and agricultural nutrients are critically important tools that allow farmers to expand yields, reduce environmental impacts, improve profitability, and provide a safe, healthy, abundant and affordable food supply.
Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution to support regulation through sound science.
Thank you for your consideration.
