Current Legislative/Regulatory Issues

HB 2439—Repeals Preemption: Allows Local Governments to Prohibit or Regulate Pesticide Use was prefiled in the Minnesota House of Representatives on 1/29/16. The 2016 Minnesota legislative session began on 3/8/16. Preemption, which is law in Minnesota, prohibits municipalities from adopting local pesticide ordinances affecting the use of pesticides on private property that are more restrictive than state policy. This bill would repeal Minnesota’s preemption law regarding the application and use of pesticides and affect the way you do business based on each locality’s laws. The bill is sponsored by Representative Jean Wagenius (DFL).
