CPCA President Testimony on SB 231

 

CPCA President Emilio Polce recently testified before the Environmental Committee in opposition of SB 231 an Act Concerning Pollinator Health.

The bill categorizes neonicotinoids as a restricted use pesticide (RUP) and bans their use during the "blooming season" from March to November. Emilio argued in opposition of the bill to Senator Kennedy and the Joint Committee on the Environment, letting them know restricting neonicotinoids doesn't protect pollinators, it jeopardizes people. Neonicotinoids are an imperative tool for protecting the public.
