An Act To Revise Notification Requirements for Pesticide Application (2011)

LD 228 repealed Maine’s pesticide notification registry, a common sense and effective system requiring that neighbors and landowners be notified in advance of aerial and air-blaster pesticide spraying near their homes. Over 1,800 people had signed up for the registry in the program’s first year. Pesticides can cause serious health problems, including birth defects, cancer, asthma and developmental disabilities. Pesticide spray can drift off target and contaminate organically grown produce.
