The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is seeking public comment on a petition to amend 2 Va. Admin. Code §5-317 regarding noxious weeds. Among other changes, the amendments would require the use of the Department of Conservation and Recreation's most current list of invasive plant species as the basis for determining inclusion on the noxious weeds list, and allow local jurisdictions to ban the sale and distribution of invasive plants within their boundaries. The deadline for comment is March 30, 2015. See http://register.dls.virginia.gov/vol31/iss14/v31i14.pdf (pp. 1347-8).
