Issue: Advance ASA’s regulatory priorities within Congress and regulatory agencies

 

ASA supports maintaining science-based processes for consideration of pesticide and environmental issues by EPA.

ASA worked hard to push against the 2015-era Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule and advocate for a replacement. In December, 2018, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Army Corps of Engineers announced a new Waters of the U.S. rule to replace the 2015-era rule. ASA will work with other likeminded stakeholders in 2019 to review the rule, draft comments, and ensure a final rule will work well for soybean farmers.
