Legislative and regulatory issues can have a profound effect on how mosquito control is practiced. Because of this, the AMCA devotes considerable resources to ensure that these problems are addressed in as timely and professional manner as possible. To this end, AMCA maintains a Legislative & Regulatory Committee, comprised of subcommittees devoted to specific issue categories such as the Endangered Species Act, Chemical Control, the Clean Water Act, the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program, Federal Lands and Federal Funding.
In addition, AMCA has membership on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee in order to provide input into the regulatory process at a federal advisory level. A workshop conference is conducted each year in Washington to provide a venue for individual AMCA members to visit their respective legislators and directly communicate their concerns as private citizens. AMCA strives to keep its membership informed on pertinent legislation and regulatory actions through newsletters, conference presentations, and official email correspondence.
