From September 21-23, Owen Caine, Executive Vice President, Government Relations & Public Policy, HCPA, attended CropLife America’s Government Policy Weekend at Amelia Island, Florida. As a valuable ally on countless pesticide and fertilizer issues facing HCPA members, CropLife America’s invitation to attend the event allowed for further alignment on important issues between our two associations. Topics included state and federal policies around pesticide programs, most notably the Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act (PRIEA). HCPA and CropLife America are working together very closely to get PRIEA passed with a long-term reauthorization in Congress.
