WITHDRAWAL OF
PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE


[ Filed March 2, 2005, 8:02 a.m. ]

The Department of Agriculture is formally withdrawing its preproposed amendment to WAC 16-230-860 regarding expanding the aerial pesticide spray boundaries of Area 6 in Benton County. This amendment was preproposed in WSR 04-13-057 on July 7, 2004. After reviewing public comment, the department determined there is no consensus for amending the current rule, and the current rule already allows, through a permit process, for aerial applications in critical situations.
