Bill To Tackle Equity Issues Related to Pesticide Exposure Signed by the Governor

A bill to establish an Environmental Justice Advisory Committee under the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has been signed by the Governor. With the passage of AB 652, which is authored by Assemblymember Alex Lee, the committee will be created to ensure that community members who are disproportionately exposed to pesticides can meaningfully offer their input on the use of pesticides.
