DPR Air Monitoring Projects. UCD’s Western Center for Agricultural Health and Safety is studying the health of approximately 400 farm worker families in Mendota (Fresno County) over several years. For details see http://agcenter.ucdavis.edu/research/current.php. DPR will be assisting with a smaller study aimed at 100 families as part of the UCD project above. Environmental Monitoring Branch staff will provide support for air monitoring; specifically DPR will measure indoor and outdoor air concentrations of multiple pesticides.

DPR is conducting a reevaluation of neonicotinoids (primarily imidacloprid) which is used for GWSS and area wide spraying.

AB 622 ~ Group

DPR is doing a bill analysis

CAAA is very concerned about the proposed 3.3 mile restriction (goes back to the broadest area for the LBAM checkmate application) – it would shut down aerial spraying in California. Proposing a field day for legislators to demonstrate an aerial application using a dye, having a fully equipped plane for them to view, and having a map showing problems if 3.3 mile restriction was in place

Problem will be: if not 3.3 miles, then what? Too many variations exist throughout the State
