ADA's Environmental Services Division will hold two listening sessions in April.

Governor Ducey signed Executive Order 2015-01 on January 5th.  This order, to promote job creation and more customer-oriented agencies, requires all state agencies to provide an evaluation of their rules with recommendations for amending or repealing those that inhibit economic development, are burdensome, antiquated, or contradictory.

To comply with this order, the Environmental Services Division of the Arizona Department of Agriculture will host two listening sessions to gather input on:
•      Suggestions on current division regulations impacting stakeholder’s businesses;
•      Issues with current service delivery and suggestions for improvements; and
•      Regulatory priorities for the Environmental Services Division

Among the areas regulated by the division that will be discussed are: Pesticide Compliance and Worker Safety; Pesticide Registration; Seed; Feed and Fertilizer. 

The Listensing Sessions will be held on:

April 7, 2015 at the Maricopa Ag Center

April 15, 2015 at Booth Machinery – Yuma

Both events will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run until the last speaker is finished.

Interim ADA Director Jack Peterson said there is no registration necessary.  Interested parties can just show up at either session and express their viewpoints.  He also welcomed emails on the subject matter to: jpeterson@azda.gov
