EPA Supports Oklahoma, Arkansas Pesticide CommitmentsMon, 11 Oct 2010 17:20:53 CDT
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded nearly 700-thousand dollars to Oklahoma and Arkansas to administer their state’s pesticide regulatory programs. The dollars will help fund different pesticide programs including: enforcement, applicator certification, worker protection standards, pesticides in water, endangered species and implementation of the new Container/Containment Rule. Both states received more than 348-thousand dollars.
EPA delegates responsibility of pesticide misuse to state and tribal agencies through a cooperative agreement under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. EPA provides outreach to consumers and communities to help states with pesticide compliance and enforcement.
