POLLINATOR RELEVANT LEGISLATION
MN 2019 SESSION
What's going on now?
Governor Dayton’s Committee for Pollinator Protection released our “Recommendations for Pollinator Protection in Minnesota,” at the end of 2018. As one of 15 committee members, Pollinate Minnesota worked hard to ensure the bold actions Minnesota's pollinators need were included.
The GCPP report is 39 policy recommendations our committee of experts spent 2 years identifying, and is a pretty great starting point for legislation. What an opportunity!
So far, we’re seeing MANY bills authored to help pollinators in the 2019 Legislature.
Check back soon for a list of this pollinator relevant legislation and our take on these bills.
Contact your legislators (learn who and how here) and voice your concern for pollinator health. Contact Erin if you're interested in other ways to help. (612.245.6384, firstname.lastname@example.org)
