Panel to review pesticide use in Arizona

Posted: Updated:

A new task force made up of operators of agricultural businesses, pest control firms and others has been launched to review Arizona laws governing pesticide use.

The panel was launched after legislation during this year's session of the Arizona Legislature had called for the review.

The task force faces a December 2012 deadline to finish reviewing current laws and recommend any changes that may be needed.
