The U.S. EPA is seeking comments on a proposal to require pesticide manufacturers to print all pesticide labels in both English and Spanish.

The proposal printed in the March 30 Federal Register is the result of a December 2009 letter from the Migrant Clinicians Network, Farmworker Justice and other farm worker organizations that asked for labels in both languages.

The EPA, in the Federal Register, cited an Aug. 11, 2000, executive order that sought to improve access to federally conducted programs by people with limited English proficiency.

To view the entire EPA proposal, including information about how to submit comments, visit the Federal Register.

Deadline to comment is June 28.
