Bloomberg Environment Includes Quotes from James V. Aidala in “EPA Budget Calls for Speedier Pesticide Reviews”
On March 11, 2019, Bloomberg Environment featured comments by James V. Aidala, Vice President, Policy and Government Affairs with The Acta Group (Acta®), regarding a plan for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to cut two months off the time it takes to review pesticide registrations.
One chemical-industry consultant says the EPA’s ability to shave 60 days from its reviews depends on the kind of registration.
“You’re not going to cut two months from a product with a four- or a six-month review time,” said James V. Aidala, a government affairs consultant with the law firm of Bergeson & Campbell PC in Washington.
“They are probably going to be looking to cut a little bit of time from product categories with a much longer reviews,” Aidala told Bloomberg Environment.
