Model State Law for IAS

The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) has drafted the following model state law for invasive species detection, control, and management. This model state law provides the statutory framework for a comprehensive program to address invasive non-native species across all taxa. The structure of the model law is based generally on the 17 state tools for managing invasive species identified in ELI’s report Halting the Invasion: State Tools for Invasive Species Management.
