Senators Look to Stop EPA Law, Oregon Investigating Illegal Pesticide

  • Last Thursday, Kansas Senator Pat Roberts and 29 other Republican Senators introduced legislation to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from implementing its proposed Waters of the U.S. rule.

    The Senators claim the rule would allow the agency to take over all private and state waters in the U.S. by expanding its jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act.

    Roberts says he wants to make sure the expansion of regulatory jurisdiction over Waters of the U.S. is shelved for good.

  • The Oregon Department of Agriculture has suspended the license of a commercial pesticide operator based in Eugene following an incident that has left an estimated 1,000 bees dead at a north Eugene apartment complex this week.

    The action taken against Glass Tree Care and Spray Service comes as ODA continues to investigate violation of the Oregon Pesticide Control Law. The company must comply with specific conditions before the license will be reinstated.

    The investigation found that an employee of the company applied a pesticide product containing the active ingredient imidacloprid last week.
