SOUTH CAROLINA (WJBF) – Crop dusting near school’s is legal in South Carolina.
In May, the Department of Pesticides Regulations was contacted after a spray incident near Oakwood-Windsor Elementary school.
An investigation determined the farmer legally dusted crops with pesticides.
South Carolina Representative Bill Taylor introduced a bill to make it illegal to spray within one thousand feet from a school, during regular hours.
The bill will go before lawmakers next year.
