Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Insect Pest and Plant Disease Act. Provides that any municipality, park board, or other board or person in control of public grounds may apply to the Department of Agriculture for an inspection of the same with reference to the presence of insect pests or plant diseases; and upon receipt of such application, or as soon thereafter as may be conveniently practicable, the Department shall review the application and may comply with it as deemed appropriate, (rather than the Department shall comply with such request) and send to such applicant a statement as to the facts disclosed, with any recommendations which the Department may deem pertinent. Repeals a provision providing that the first consignee in this State who receives, directly or indirectly, any nursery stock from a foreign country shall notify the Department of the arrival of such stock, the kinds and amounts of the same, and the name of the consignor, and shall hold such shipment in the original container until duly inspected or released by the Department. Effective immediately.
