The CDFA will be holding "scoping" meetings to hear public comments regarding their Environmental Impact Review (EIR) process. Please be aware that the spraying is not dependent on completion of such a review, because they have declared a "State of Emergency", which gives them the right to overrule other regulations, such as local pesticide ordinances, private property laws, and health, safety, and environmental protection.
You can demonstrate your concerns at the meeting, which the CDFA is expected to attend. More meetings, organized by the CDFA, various city and county officials, and grassroots activists, in various communities are being added all the time. Please keep updated by checking out the calendar at http://www.lbamspray.com/calendar.htm
Oral and written comments will be accepted.
The deadline for written comments is March 20, 2008.
They may be sent to:
Jim Rains, Staff Environmental Scientist
CA Department of Food and Agriculture
Plant Health and Pest Prevention Services
1220 N Street, Room A-316
Sacramento, CA 95814
