Current Bill Summary

SB 1165 - This act creates the "Pesticide Project Fund". The annual pesticide registration fees shall be deposited in the fund. Twenty percent of the fund shall be used for administration of the Pesticide Project Fund and the Pesticide Registration Program and eighty percent shall be distributed for the purposes of pesticide education efforts, training, monitoring and other pesticide related issues. This fund shall be administered by the Plant Industries Division within the Department of Agriculture.

This act mandates new pesticide registration if there are changes to the pesticide company's name, trade name, active ingredient, concentration of the ingredient or the EPA registration number.

This act increases the annual registration fee from fifteen to one hundred twenty-five dollars. The increase becomes effective in 2003.

This act also allows the director, after a hearing, to suspend, cancel or revoke a pesticide registration if the pesticide may cause damage or injury, or could be harmful to the environment.
