Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Pesticide Act. Provides that, beginning January 1, 2027, no person shall sell offer for sale or use, or distribute within the State any corn, soybean, or wheat seed that is treated or coated with a pesticide that has certain active ingredients, unless the Department of Agriculture suspends that requirement after determining that either (i) there is a commercially insufficient amount of seed that does not violate that requirement or (ii) the purchase of seed that complies with requirement would result in an undue financial hardship for agricultural producers. Sets out limitations on the application of pesticides containing the same active ingredients on outdoor ornamental plants and turf except in specified circumstances. Directs the Department to conduct a study to identify alternatives to the prohibited pesticides. Effective immediately.
