Plant diseases, insect pests; control outbreaks; cooperative agreements; authorized; appropriation.

The Department of Agriculture may enter into cooperative agreements with any state or federal agency pursuant to Senate Joint Resolution 256, 75th Congress 3rd Session (May 9, 1938), for the control of incipient or emergency outbreaks of insect pests or plant diseases whenever the Director of Agriculture determines that such control is necessary for the protection of cropland and rangeland in the State of Nebraska. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to authorize the Department of Agriculture to submit a state plan pursuant to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, as amended, to the federal Environmental Protection Agency. There are hereby authorized to be appropriated annually from the General Fund such sums as may be necessary to accomplish control activities not to exceed one-third of the cost of controlling such outbreaks.
