Re: E-M:/ Defining DNR's derogation

Hi Ken,
This "derogation" for DNR's use of 5 pesticides caught my eye finally on EnviroMich.  Has DNR asked MDA for a reaction to changes in labeled uses?  Or doesn't derogation involve that?  You can see the link to the article in the message below.
If you could have a response for me before the comment period expires that would be most helpful.

Subject: E-M:/ Defining DNR's derogation

Several readers e-mailed to ask about an item on the Department of Natural Resources Web site that asks for public comment on the "derogation" of five chemicals for use in forestry.

Derogation simply means deviating from a standard and using something in a way that it is not used normally or hasn't been used before.

The chemicals to be derogated are hexazinone, Dimilin, dicamba, 2,4-D dimethylamine salt and 2,4-D 2-ethylexter ester. Members of the public can comment by writing Nezich at the DNR, Marquette Operation Center, 1990 U.S. 41 South, Marquette, MI 49855, or by sending e-mail to him at nezichd@michigan.gov.
