Request for Public Comments: “Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) Tribal Consultation Policy”

Communicating with California’s diverse population is a priority for the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR). Two-way communication helps to promote pesticide safety and awareness, and is a crucial part of the regulatory framework. This communication may include California Native American Tribes through consultation, enforcement, and outreach.

DPR is soliciting comments on a draft Tribal Consultation Policy to improve communication and coordination with DPR, its enforcement partners, the county agricultural commissioners, and California Native American Tribes and includes background information to prepare DPR staff for successful communication related to pesticides, with Tribal representatives.

Interested persons may submit written comments on the draft policy through January 9, 2019. Please submit your comments to:

Paul Ryan, Tribal Liaison
Department of Pesticide Regulation, Northern Regional Office
3210 Beacon Boulevard
West Sacramento, CA 95691-3444
E-mail: Paul.Ryan@cdpr.ca.gov

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Ryan at Paul.Ryan@cdpr.ca.gov or Teresa Marks, Chief Deputy Director Teresa.Marks@cdpr.ca.gov or by calling (916) 445-4000.
