Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman is sponsoring a bill to create a tick control advisory committee.
The legislation is expected to be discussed at the county Legislature’s Public Works & Public Transportation Committee meeting at 2 p.m. in Hauppauge.
According to the bill, a tick control advisory committee would be able to assist the Division of Vector Control in developing a plan to reduce tick-borne illnesses.
In October, the Legislautre approved another bill Mr. Schniderman (I-Montauk) sponsored that requires Vector Control, which is charged with controlling the spread of insect-borne diseases, to submit an annual plan to combat the increase in cases of tick-borne disease.
