NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A526
 
SPONSOR: Gunther (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to providing the definition of integrated pest management   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA: This bill defines Integrated pest management to provide a basis of understanding and common understanding of the practice and intention   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Adds new subdivision 27-a to section 33-0101 of the ECL to define Inte- grated pest management as "systematic approach to managing pests that utilizes a diversity of management options to minimize health, environ- mental and economic risks and impacts. These options may include biolog- ical, cultural, physical and chemical tools to prevent pest infestations or reduce them to acceptable levels., study of integrated pest manage- ment at state facilities.   JUSTIFICATION: Although integrated pest management (IPM) is often touted as a means of reducing pesticide usage, New York State lacks a clear definition of what this actually means. This legislation would define IPM thus provid- ing a clear and unified starting point for future development and regu- lation. This definition was created in consultation with Cornell Univer- sity's NYS IPM Program and other industry sectors. The biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools provided for in the definition are a starting point which infer a level of understanding regarding the various options available to manage pest infestations. This level of knowledge or understanding may require an education element to be obtained by individuals or organizations that employ an IPM system.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2015-16: A.1186 Environmental Conservation/S.3064 Passed Senate 2013-14: A.1172 Environmental Conservation/S.2203 Passed Senate 2011-12: A.7129 Environmental Conservation/S.2775 Passed Senate 2009-10: A.4147A Environmental Conservation/S.4949A Passed Senate 2007-08: A.1096 Environmental Conservation 2005-06: A.1565 Environmental Conservation 2003-04: A.5928 Environmental Conservation 2001-02: A.462A Passed Assembly 1999-00: A.945A Ways & Means 1997-98: A.4505B Passed Assembly 1995-96: A.2072 Passed Assembly 1993-94: A.4774E Passed Assembly   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: State agencies, public authorities, and public benefit corporations will realize a cost savings as a result of a reduction in pesticide use.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
