EPA Withdraws Several Pesticide-Related Rulemakings from the Regulatory Agenda


On May 7, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it is withdrawing certain proposed rules for which EPA no longer intends to issue a final rule.  83 Fed. Reg. 20004.  EPA notes that its withdrawal of these proposed rules does not preclude it from initiating the same or a similar rulemaking at a future date.  Withdrawing the proposed rules officially terminates the ongoing rulemaking activities, allowing EPA to close out the individual entries for these rulemakings in EPA’s Semiannual Regulatory Agenda.  Should EPA decide at some future date to initiate the same or similar rulemakings, EPA states that it will add an appropriate new entry to its Semiannual Regulatory Agenda to reflect the initiation of the action, and EPA will issue a new notice of proposed rulemaking.
