The U.S. Congress has passed another continuing resolution extending the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA 3) until December 22, 2017. Congress has been working on a replacement for PRIA 3. The new bill, the Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act (PRIEA or PRIA 4) remains on hold by Senator Udall (D-NM) due to concerns about EPA’s delay of certain new rules (Worker Protection Standard changes and restricted use pesticide certification/training). Because the bill cannot come to a vote, the new continuing resolution gives additional time to pass PRIEA, or a longer-term continuing resolution for PRIA 3.
