DEPARTMENT REPORT November 2017
As the deadline approaches for the State of California to being issuing licenses for commercial cannabis activities, local government agencies are waiting with much anticipation for the release of commercial cultivation emergency regulations. CalCannabis announced that these regulations will probably be released in late November during the California Agricultural Commissioner’s and Sealer’s Association (CACASA) Secretary and Director’s Conference last week. Once these regulations and associated EIR are adopted, CalCannabis will provide some direct outreach and training to Agricultural Commissioner staff on how to provide enforcement and oversight to the cannabis industry.
Commercial cannabis licenses issued by the state first require either local authorization or silence from the local agency on whether such a business is allowed pursuant to local code. The recently passed AB133 removed the requirement of a 60 day local review of state license applications by local agencies. CSAC is working to bring the 60 day review period back via legislation. Until this is successful, state agencies can issue licenses to applicants immediately if they provide local authorization with their state application materials. The Bureau of Cannabis Control has stated that information is forthcoming on what will qualify as local authorization.
CalCannabis also has a number of good fact sheets and a checklist for getting your state license posted on their website.
SB1, which increases gas taxes to those that purchase gasoline in the State of California, will result in an increased gas tax distribution to Agricultural Commissioner’s Offices beginning with the disbursement in April 2019. Our offices receive a portion of unclaimed gas tax dollars for agricultural programs under the assumption that not all agricultural producers file for refunds on gas taxes paid on fuel purchased for agricultural production, which is exempt from taxes due to these activities occurring off-road. Whether these funds ever materialize is still in question as several repeal initiatives have begun on the tax increase.
All county inspector and biologist licensing exams are now available online. This allows applicants to test at any time instead of four written exam cycles. Our local office is now also authorized to administer these exams. So far in 2017, the California Department of Food and Agriculture has recorded 11,151 online exams statewide. This accessibility will hopefully widen the pool of candidates for inspector and biologist positions.
Agriculture Legislation of Interest
AB1687 – Pesticides: Use of Anticoagulants
This bill would expand the current list of pesticides defined as anticoagulants in the State of California, and would prohibit the use of such pesticides statewide in most cases outside of agricultural use. Anticoagulants are used extensively in rural areas such as ours for rodent control, and this bill would prohibit such use if not linked to agricultural production. Inyo and Mono Counties consistently lead the state in Hantavirus occurrence and illness, and record the presence of other rodent-borne illnesses such as plague every year.
This bill was initially presented as bill to amend regulations for Certified Farmers Markets, but was gutted and replaced with the current text.
