®: CRE Regulatory Action of the Week

CRE Data Quality Petition on Atrazine Criticized
BNA’s Daily Environment Reporter reported several criticisms directed at the Atrazine Data Quality petition filed jointly by CRE, the Kansas Corn Growers Association and the Triazine Network. The World Wildlife Fund stated, "I think this is a colossally cynical action that is designed to impose a gag order on EPA from saying anything meaningful about endocrine disruption from chemicals." OMB Watch stated, "It creates a vulnerability in the agency that will allow the regulated industry to slow down and possibly derail agency actions." It should be noted that CRE examined a large number of other possible Data Quality actions prior to deciding to file the Atrazine petition. A reading of the petition clearly demonstrates that there are no validated tests for measuring endocrine disruption and this deficiency is in complete violation of the Data Quality Act.
