New Hampshire Poised for State-Wide Ban on Pesticides on Public Property
After months of contentious debate within a legislative committee, Representative Suzanne Smith has now taken the next step in the legislative process to regulate the use of lawn care pesticides by drafting the Lawn and Grounds for Healthy Children Act.
The Act proposes a gradual phase out of the use of certain lawn and grounds care pesticides applied on the grounds of child day care agencies, schools, municipally-owned properties, and state parks. The bill also provides for transitional planning, training of certified applicators, and education.
