Description

To protect bee and other pollinator populations throughout the
state, the bill requires the commissioner of agriculture (commissioner), on
or before March 1, 2021, to adopt rules to regulate the use of
neonicotinoid pesticides and sulfoximine pesticides by classifying
specific neonicotinoid pesticides and sulfoximine pesticides as
restricted-use pesticides. The commissioner's rules must exempt from the

restricted use of the pesticides their use as indoor pest control, personal
care, and pet care products; however, the commissioner, thereafter, may
amend the rules to disallow their use as indoor pest control, personal care,
or pet care products if the commissioner determines that another
commercially available product that is not a neonicotinoid pesticide or a
sulfoximine pesticide is as or more effective than a neonicotinoid
pesticide or a sulfoximine pesticide when used in accordance with the
product's label directions for the same indoor pest control, personal care,
or pet care use or uses.
The commissioner's rules regarding the restricted use of
neonicotinoid pesticides and sulfoximine pesticides must not apply to
commercial applicators, limited commercial applicators, public
applicators, qualified supervisors, certified operators, and private
applicators.
