State approves Malibu’s pesticide ban
A staff report to the commission notes that 16 commercial vineyards would fall within the ban.
Commissioners approved the measure unanimously, as long as the city allowed limited use for controlling invasive species and restoring habitat. The commission has in the past approved prohibitions on rodenticides to protect mountain lions .

But it gained pushback from the Department of Pesticide Regulation. https://www.agri-pulse.com/articles/15865-state-approves-malibus-pesticide-ban
