ABSTRACT
Regulatory changes in the Environmental Protection Agency's process for reviewing pesticides in accordance with provisions of the Endangered Species Act may be helpful to agriculture. The regulations, designed to make the Endangered Species Act more efficient and timely and to improve the protection of endangered/threatened species, were released in January. The EPA consult with FWS before making pesticide-related decisions in order to work out differences before regulations are issued. The problem was that the Fish and Wildlife Services, according to a General Accounting Office report, had been unable to complete consultations in a timely manner.
