Neonicotinoid pesticides. Requires the pesticide review board (board) to adopt rules prohibiting the use of neonicotinoids (certain insecticides having a chemical structure similar to the chemical structure of nicotine). Allows the board, according to its best judgment in weighing certain factors, to determine the date on which the prohibition will take full effect and to implement the prohibition gradually. Authorizes the board, for purposes of the period before the prohibition against using neonicotinoids is fully in effect, to adopt emergency rules restricting when and where neonicotinoids can be used and imposing requirements for the training of certified applicators using neonicotinoids.
