                                            together with

                                         MINORITY   VIEWS

                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                     The Committee  on Environment and Public Works, to which was
                   referred the bill (S. 1500) to clarify Congressional intent regarding
                   the regulation of the use of pesticides in or near navigable waters,
                   and for other purposes, having considered the same, reports favor-
                   ably thereon without amendment  and recommends  that the bill do

                                GENERAL  STATEMENT  AND BACKGROUND
                   FIFRA
                     The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)
                   governs the registration, sale, and use of pesticide products within
                   the United States. 7 U.S.C. 136 et seq.
                     Section 2(u) of FIFRA  defines pesticides broadly as any sub-
                   stance used to kill, repel or control pests, to regulate plants, or to
                   stabilize nitrogen. EPA is directed to restrict the use of pesticides
                   as necessary to prevent unreasonable adverse effects on people and
                   the environment and regulate the sale and use of pesticides in the
                   United States through registration and labeling.
                     Originally enacted in 1947,  Congress substantially amended
                   FIFRA  in 1972. The legislative history of the 1972 amendments
                   makes  it clear that Congress intended FIFRA to be the tool for
                   EPA  to protect the human   health and  environment,  including
                      59-010
