New Zealand passes EPA bill

New Zealand Environment Minister Nick Smith has welcomed the passage of legislation to establish the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). The new agency will "improve environmental management by providing a consistent regulatory approach across New Zealand and over a broad range of environmental issues scattered among different agencies," Smith says. The EPA will take over the regulation of pesticides and genetically modified organisms from the Environmental Risk Management Authority. It will be established on July 1.
