Maryland Pest Control Ass'n v. Prince George's County

ELR Citation: 18 ELR 20585
Nos. No. 86-3633, 822 F.2d 55/27 ERC 1150/(4th Cir., 06/16/1987) Aff'd per curiam

The court affirms a district court decision, 17 ELR 20511, holding that the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) preempts Maryland county regulations requiring commercial pesticide applicators to post sprayed areas and provide notification of pesticide hazards because FIFRA allows only states and not subdivisions of states to regulate pesticides.
