Easy Peasy Pollinator Political Action

This link from Panna will create a letter addressed to your representative for support of bills SF 2695 & SF 2785 after you put in your zipcode. Then all you do is hit send. Easy.

Public Action Letters for Pro Pollinator Bills

"The first bill, which was passed by the House earlier this week, defines neonics as “pollinator lethal insecticides” and would bar nurseries from labeling any plants pre-treated with these insecticides as bee-friendly. Right now, if you buy a plant at a nursery, you have no way of knowing whether or not it will harm bees. Not good!
The other bill would provide financial compensation for beekeepers whose colonies die from exposure to pesticides. It would also establish a team of experts to investigate these incidents, and determine the source of exposure."
