Midwest lawmakers are asking the Environmental Protection Agency to be fair in its panel review of atrazine.

In a letter sent on Friday, lawmakers asked for EPA’s Scientific Advisory Panel to meet in-person in August. Lawmakers said in-person provides higher quality discussions and better questions.

Lawmakers also expressed concern about the narrow scope of atrazine studies the scientific advisory panel will consider and asked EPA to consider adding candidates with agronomy and agricultural sciences background to the panel.
