I want to thank the Chairwoman for being willing to come to the table and find a more measured approach we can all agree on.

House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Ranking Member Frank Lucas praised the EPA's release of guidance to registrants of glyphosate, which will ensure clarity on labeling of the chemical on their products. EPA will no longer approve product labels claiming glyphosate is known to cause cancer – a false claim that does not meet the labeling requirements of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
