State of Minnesota Directing Steps to Reverse Pollinator Decline and Restore Pollinator Health in Minnesota by Executive Order

Here is the link to the Executive Order 16-07 by Governor Mark Dayton:

This includes a 'verification of need' prior to the use of neonicotinoid pesticides, increased inspections and enforcement of pesticide label requirements, the formation of an interagency Pollinator Protection Team and many, many other great steps.

Thank you Governor Dayton, Commissioner of Agriculture Dave Frederickson, Representative Rick Hansen and all the many concerned citizens and  pollinator advocates working on this.
