New! Nationwide Preemption Ban Reintroduced in Congress

The Protect America’s Children from Toxic Pesticides Act (PACTPA) would ban state-wide pesticide preemption across the United States. If enacted by Congress, the provisions in the bill would significantly impact the pest management industry. This bill would have a devastating impact on pesticide registration and use in general and would repeal pesticide preemption nationwide.
