We need to push the Governor O’Malley Administration and the Maryland General Assembly to pass this bill as it would be a significant first step toward a comprehensive, mandatory reporting pesticide use database. A 2014 General Assembly bill (HB 621/SB 700) would establish a dedicated fund for a pesticide reporting database through a modest $10 increase on the annual product registration fee paid by pesticide chemical manufacturers. The generated revenue would be used for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data on pesticide use in the state.
