AAPCA is cosponsoring this important  bill with Earth Justice and The United Farmworkers.
Existing law regulates the use of pesticides and authorizes the Director of Pesticide Regulation to adopt regulations to govern the possession, sale, or use of specified pesticides, as prescribed. SB 86, among its provisions, would prohibit the use of a pesticide that contains the active ingredient chlorpyrifos.
