Fee Regulations
 

I do not agree with the implementation of these fees. In order for someone to legally apply pesticides, there are certifications and licenses that he/she must receive. There are many regulations in place, and adding fees would add another hoop for businesses, farmers, and commercial applicators to jump through. While I agree with the importance of protecting the public's health and safety, I believe current regulations should be better enforced before adding other regulations.
