In response to concern about the use of pesticides and their potentially damaging effects on people, wildlife, and the Chesapeake Bay watershed, the Governor established the Governor's Pesticide Council in January 1990 (Executive Order 01.01.1990.02). The Council reviews pesticide management programs and recommends actions to safeguard the health of citizens and the environment. Pesticide manufacture, transport, storage, use, and disposal also are considered by the Council. In addition, the Toxics Management Strategy of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement is evaluated by the Council (Executive Order 01.01.1993.21; Executive Order 01.01.1997.05).
