Colorado–wonderland for horses

In this Oct. 17, 2007, file photo, Kiger Mustangs from the Kiger Management Area near Diamond in southeast Oregon are shown.  Wild horse advocates are challenging U.S. Bureau of Land Management plans to round up the famous Kiger and Riddle Mountain mustang herds in eastern Oregon, arguing that the roundup is designed to breed a master race of wild horses exhibiting old Spanish bloodlines, violating the intent of the law protecting wild horses.

As of 2013, Oregon law on pesticides/herbicides:    634.725 Application of low-impact pesticide. If a school has followed the integrated pest management plan and nonchemical pest control measures were ineffective, subject to ORS 634.730 the integrated pest management plan coordinator may authorize the application of a low-impact pesticide. The low-impact pesticide application must be made by a pesticide applicator or by a public applicator. The use of a pesticide applicator or public applicator to make an application does not cancel, alter or reassign any of the duties imposed under ORS 634.740 or 634.750. [2009 c.501 §5]         634.740 Written notice requirements; warning signs; failure to notify or warn. (1) The governing body responsible for a school shall adopt policies and processes for ensuring that the integrated pest management plan coordinator for the school, or a designee of the coordinator, gives written notice of a proposed pesticide application at the campus to, at a minimum, parents and guardians of minor students, adult students, school administrators, faculty members and staff members. The plan coordinator or designee may give a written notice described in this subsection by any reasonable means, including but not limited to, electronic mail.     https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/bills_laws/lawsstatutes/2013ors634.html
