The Pesticide Advisory Committee (PAC) was created under section 35-10-125, C.R.S., of the Pesticide Applicators Act (PAA), to assist the commissioner in promulgating rules and regulations to carry out the provisions of the PAA. The committee consists of fifteen members.
All members of the advisory committee must be residents of the State of Colorado and each member serves on the committee for a term of three years. The Committee meets quarterly (Jan, April, July, Oct) on the the last Monday of the month.
The PAC members responsibilities are to help the Department in the promulgation of Rules which entails reviewing and discussing any proposed Rules with the Department during scheduled meetings, reaching out to the industry they represent to communicate these changes that may effect them, and then providing the Department feedback on the Rule for its consideration.
The Department has three positions it needs to fill including one for a representative from the agricultural sector who handles/harvests a plant/agricultural product after it has been sprayed with a pesticide and that the Federal Worker Protection Standard law applies to.
If you are interested in filling one or more of these positions, please submit the nomination form to John W. Scott, Pesticides Program Manager at 303-869-9056 or by email at JohnW.Scott@state.co.us.
The next Ag Commission meeting where these nominations will be considered, will be February 13, 2019.
