AB 2816, Muratsuchi. Pesticides: schoolsites: report.
Existing law, the Healthy Schools Act of 2000, requires that the preferred method of managing pests at schoolsites, as defined, is to use effective, least toxic pest management practices and requires schoolsites to maintain records of all pesticides used at the schoolsite for a period of 4 years. Existing law requires schools to provide all staff and parents or guardians of pupils enrolled at a school written notification of, among other things, expected pesticide use at that schoolsite. Existing law requires the Department of Pesticide Regulation to establish an integrated pest management training program in order to facilitate the adoption of a model integrated pest management program and least-hazardous pest control practices by schoolsites and requires certain persons who, in the course of their work, intend to apply a pesticide at a schoolsite to annually complete a training course provided by that department.
This bill would require the department to submit a report to the Legislature on or before January 1, 2021, that evaluates the implementation, and the effect of the implementation, of the Healthy Schools Act of 2000 and that provides recommendations on improving the implementation and efficacy of the Healthy Schools Act of 2000.

(d) This section shall become inoperative on July 1, 2021, and, as of January 1, 2022, is repealed.
