Beware Of Two Bills That Seek To Roll Back Your Right To Know About Pesticide Spraying In Your Neighborhood
LD 16 - An Act To Revise Notification Requirements for Pesticides Applications Using Aircraft or Air-carrier Equipment. This bill would reduce the aerial spray notification distance from 1,320 feet to 100 feet, and reduce the air-carrier spray notification distance into crowns of fruit trees or Christmas trees from 500 feet to 50 feet. MOFGA opposes this bill.
LD 228 - An Act To Revise Notification Requirements for Pesticide Application. This bill seeks to repeal the notification registry entirely. MOFGA opposes this bill.
