The U.S. House of Representatives is currently debating HR 872, a bill to clarify Congressional intent regarding the regulation of the use of pesticides in or near navigable waters.
Congressmen Raul Labrador and Mike Simpson are both co-sponsors of this legislation, but if you have friends or family living in other states, please encourage them to call their member of Congress and ask they support HR 872. The National Association of Conservation Districts has voiced their support for passage of this legislation, and is continuing to work hard to see passage of the bill around 2pm EDT today.
***UPDATE*** HR 872 passed the House floor with a bipartisan vote of 292 to 130. Both of Idaho’s Congressmen voted in favor of the legislation.
