Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill bans the use of glyphosate and dicamba under certain conditions and directs the Board of Pesticides Control, within the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (ACF), to establish a medical advisory committee to evaluate the potential impact of herbicides used on school grounds on human health and complete a final report of their findings by February 1, 2022. Any additional costs to the ACF to complete the additional reporting are anticipated to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
