This bill would direct the Department of Environmental Protection to classify neonicotinoid pesticides as restricted use pesticides, and establish a list of chemicals that belong to the neonicotinoid class of chemicals to be included under this classification. Neonicotinoid pesticides are suspected of having adverse effects on pollinating insects and may contribute to the disappearance of bee populations, commonly referred to as "colony collapse disorder." As a restricted use pesticide, neonicotinoids could only be purchased and used by certified and licensed pesticide applicators, or persons working under the direct supervision of a certified and licensed pesticide applicator.
