[Memorandum--March 2, 1998]

Pursuant to RCW 17.15.040, please be advised that the Interagency Integrated Pest Management Coordinating Committee (IIPMCC) will hold its first meeting of 1998 on April 3, 1998. The meeting will be held at the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington Street, Olympia, WA, in Room 172 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All meetings of the IIPMCC are open to the public.

During the 1997 regular session of the 55th legislature, SSB 5077 was passed. The bill was signed by Governor Locke and codified as chapter 17.15 RCW. The law affirms that it is the policy of the state of Washington to require all state agencies and institutions of higher education, that have pest control responsibilities, to utilize the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Chapter 17.15 RCW also creates the IIPMCC. The IIPMCC meetings allow the members, composed of state agencies and institutions of higher education, to share information and promote interagency coordination. IPM training programs will also be discussed.
