Pesticide Control Fund.
There is hereby created in the
State Treasury a special fund to be known as the Pesticide Control Fund.
All registration, penalty and license fees collected by the Department
pursuant to this Act shall be deposited into the Fund. The amount annually
collected as fees shall be appropriated by the General Assembly to the
Department for the purposes of conducting a public educational program on
the proper use of pesticides, for other activities related to the
enforcement of this Act, and for administration of the Insect Pest and
Plant Disease Act. However, the increase in fees in Sections 6, 10, and 13
of this Act resulting from this amendatory Act of 1990 shall be used by the
Department for the purpose of carrying out the Department's powers and
duties as set forth in paragraph 8 of Section 19 of this Act. The monies
collected under Section 13.1 of this Act shall be deposited in the
Agrichemical Incident Response Fund. In addition, for the years 2004 and
thereafter, $125 of each pesticide annual business registration fee and $50 of
each pesticide product annual registration fee collected by the Department
pursuant to Section 6, paragraph 6 of this Act shall be deposited by the
Department directly into the State's General Revenue Fund.
