Bill would require hearings for aerial spraying

ON TARGET: The state Legislature approved a bill that would require public hearings and health evaluations before officials could order aerial spraying in cities to control agricultural pests.

It was in response to the Schwarzenegger administration’s aborted plans to use aerial spraying to control the light-brown apple moth in the San Francisco and Monterey areas.

The program was canceled in June after months of public uproar. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has not taken a position on it.
