Click here to find a copy of the bill filed by State Rep. Dylan Fernandes (D-Falmouth), H.3927, An Act Empowering Towns to Protect Their Environment and Residents From Harmful Pesticides. The bill has been admitted and referred to the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture. This bill effectively guts the pre-emption law that we fought hard to establish many years ago and would open up a difficult challenge for industry. Trying to fight this at the municipal level would be extremely challenging and we would undoubtedly see a hodge podge of new rules popping up in many of the Commonwealth’s 351 cities and towns.
