Do not eliminate permitting for use of herbicides and pesticides. The permitting process is absolutely necessary to know how much of these substances are being introduced into the environment and where. I obtain permits to drive, hunt and fish, part of those permit fees pay for necessary government services and the permitting and game reporting process helps maintain healthy wildlife populations. The permitting process for these substances allows state and local government to track how much of these substances are being introduced into our local environment so that "safe" levels can be maintained. Do not eliminate this regulation.
