Act Now to Oppose New Pesticide Use Regulations

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) recently released a proposed regulation to impose extensive restrictions on the use of agricultural pesticides within a quarter-mile of K-12 public schools and licensed childcare centers. Ag Council opposes the proposed rule and is asking DPR to take into account the significant regulatory protections already in place in California.
