New Hampshire Bill HB 646
New Hampshire House Bill 646, “relative to labeling, signage, and restrictions on the sales and use of bee-toxic pesticides”, defines and restricts the use of bee-toxic pesticides which affect all species of pollinators and requires certain state agencies to publish best practices for transitioning away from these pesticides.
After a 13-6 vote in the Environment and Agriculture Committee, New Hampshire will complete a 2020 study before taking further action on the bill. This comes after a coordinated effort from GCSAA members in New Hampshire and RISE (Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment). While the bill is still live, the study will allow lawmakers to be properly informed.
