Call on Governor Hogan to Sign the Pollinator Protection Act into Law

The Pollinator Protection Act (SB 198/HB211) passed the Maryland Legislature with solid bi-partisan support. However, there is a chance that Governor Hogan will veto the bill. If this happens, the bill will go back to the lesislators for an override vote, which will take place in early 2017.

But we can't wait any longer. Last year, Maryland beekeepers lost a staggering 61 percent of their hives - about twice the national average and far more than in a typical year. Since 2006, beekeepers have lost an average of 30 percent of their hives. We sent a strong clear message to our elected officials that we, and our birds, butterflies and bees need urgent help.

Tell Governor Hogan to follow the lead of the Maryland legislature and protect pollinators by sending a message today!
