The U.S. EPA is extending the comment period on its proposed plan to prohibit the use of all highly toxic pesticides when crops are in bloom and bees are present under contract for pollination services. Initially released on May 29, 2015, the plan also recommends that states and tribes develop pollinator protection plans and best management practices.

The 30-day extension ends on August 28 and will be announced in the Federal Register.

    What is the point of the comment period or even extending it? Is this a smoke screen to make it look like this agency is being fair and balanced when it comes to decision making? This agency is controlled by corporate America they don’t care about public comments it’s a waste of time.
