Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Pesticide Act. Provides that "Commercial Not For Hire Applicator" includes a certified applicator who uses or supervises the use of pesticides classified for general or restricted use as an employee of a State agency, municipality, or other duly constituted governmental agency or unit. Removes the definition of "Licensed Public Applicator" and makes conforming changes. Adds provisions concerning multi-year licenses and pesticide dealer registrations.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that if specified notice is submitted then an employer may request that the unused portion of a terminated licensee's pesticide applicator or operator license term be transferred to a newly certified or re-certified individual (rather than only a newly certified individual). Makes a corresponding change. Provides that the Director of Agriculture may issue the appropriate pesticide applicator or operator license (rather than a pesticide applicator license) to the newly certified or re-certified individual.
