Washington, D.C. (July 31, 2014)--The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) today applauded House passage of H.R. 935, the Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act, by a vote of 267-161. The bill, introduced by Congressmen Bob Gibbs (R-Ohio), Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Austin Scott (R-Ga.) and Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.), would eliminate the costly and duplicative pesticide permitting requirements imposed on farmers and ranchers by a misguided decision of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in National Cotton Council v. EPA.

NCFC joined with other farm groups to create the Agriculture Workforce Coalition (AWC), which represents the unified voice of agriculture as the sector seeks to ensure that farmers, ranchers and growers are able to access a skilled and stable workforce.
NCFC joins broad-based coalition to advocate for a federal GMO labeling solution.
