HEARD FROM THE HILL


Bills limiting use of neonicotinoid pesticides introduced in Maine, Alaska
NPMA
Last week, a bill was introduced in the Maine Legislature banning the use, sale and distribution of neonicotinoid pesticides for two years. The measure, LD 1587, defines the term "neonicotinoid pesticide" as a pesticide containing imidacloprid, clothianidin, thiamethoxam, dinotefuran, acetamiprid or thiacloprid. The legislation also directs the Legislature's Joint Standing Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to review the use and effects of neonicotinoid pesticides. Click here to read LD 1587.

Legislation was also prefiled last week for the upcoming 2014 session of the Alaska Legislature prohibiting the application of imidacloprid, clothianidin, thiamethoxam, dinotefuran, acetamiprid, or any other neonicotinoid pesticide to seeds, foliage, or in granular form to soil, unless the pesticide is contained entirely within a greenhouse.

Similar legislation is also pending in New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico and Vermont.
