First Paragraph: There were a couple of very substantial changes in our pesticide use enforcement program that took place this year. These changes, the most significant in years, aim to increase enforcement for pesticides misuses. The first change is in how we respond to pesticide use violations. The second, is a new law requiring reimbursement of all uncompensated medical costs for certain pesticide injuries that were caused by pesticide use violations. The law also increases penalties for these types of violations.
