HB 734 (Hope) unanimously passed the House of Delegates. The measure establishes an advisory committee to evaluate certain plant types that should be designated as a noxious weed. HB 734 requires the advisory committee to consider the plant’s (i) impact on water bodies, other plants, livestock, land, public health, the environment, and the economy and (ii) current and potential in-state commercial viability.
