April 24, 2023, letter to Chris Holden, Chair, Assembly Committee on Appropriations.
SCFB Executive Director Dayna Ghirardelli and President Doug Beretta submitted a letter supporting AB 1016. The current agricultural landscape begs for innovation, technology, and precision that promotes efficiency. AB 1016 contributes to that goal by expanding the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR)’s authority to create training programs for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or drone) aerial applicator licensing.
