The Hawaii Senate Committee on Agriculture and Environment voted Monday to adopt three measures dealing with pesticide exposure and safety.
Several Kauai residents testified on the matter.
Jeri Di Pietro, president of Hawaii SEED and GMO Free Kauai, said it’s imperative to see the recommendations implemented.
“Citizens on our island have done everything we can think of as far as following the steps of law,” Di Pietro said. “We think these recommendations should be (implemented) on Kauai, but also across the island chain.”
