ARSD 12:62:03:01.07 The rules will add wild parsnip to the local noxious weed and declared pest list. This will allow the counties the ability to select locally noxious weeds and pests for their local county listings. The reason for adopting the proposed rules is to allow counties to be able to request wild parsnip as a locally declared noxious weed or pest in their county. At the request of a county weed board, the Commission determined that wild parsnip does meet the characteristics of a locally noxious weed set forth in ARSD 12:62:07:01 and would add it to the listing of locally noxious weeds and pests. This would allow counties to take enforcement actions against landowners who chose not to control wild parsnip. 04/18/2023 04/12/2023
Amendments to ARSD 12:56 Proposed rules will update certification and training regulations as part of signed certification and training plan with the EPA.
