AzPPO Has Your Back

AzPPO supported legislation this year that gives the industry a greater voice in the Arizona Department of Agriculture, which is the state agency that regulates our industry. For those not aware, the pest management industry was previously regulated by a commission of individuals that had experience in the industry, supported by professional staff. Today, we are regulated by the Arizona Department of Agriculture. AzPPO feels that the industry, as a whole, has less input in how we are regulated and how the fees we pay are utilized for the regulation of the industry. At the request of AzPPO, Senator Pratt, a Republican from the Casa Grande area, is sponsoring SB 1529. The bill increases the industry’s representation within the Department’s decision-making process on matters impacting the pest management profession.
