Invasive Plant Species Rule


ONLA has been working for a number of years to bring clarity to the state governance of invasive plant species. In 2014, ONLA worked with legislators to grant authority for the Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) to govern invasive plant species.

Since that time, ODA has held countless interested party meetings and conversed with their peers in other states to seek to draft specificity to this authority under the rulemaking process.

ONLA has been involved in the development of the new plant rules since July. ONLA members were encouraged to  provide comments on the draft rules throughout the rule making process.

You can read ONLA's comments submitted to ODA on July 7 here. 

If you have questions about the new rules, please call Belinda Jones at 614.679.5062.



Legislative Status Sheet

ONLA reviews every bill that is introduced in the Ohio General Assembly to check the bill's potential relevance to ONLA member businesses. Every two years, between 1,000 and 1,200 bills are introduced.  Of those 1,200, only about 250 bills actually make it through the process.
