Oregon 

State Representative Jeff Reardon is proposing a short-term two part solution to reduce the harm caused to pollinators by neonicotinoid pesticides. His proposed bill would:

1)    Allow only licensed applicators to use products that contain dinotefuran, imidacloprid, clothianidin, and thiamethoxam. The bill only applies to products that are used in places where pollinators could be exposed.

2)    Provide pesticide applicators with greater knowledge about how to protect pollinators by requiring training through a learning module prepared by Oregon State University and an exam.

Please support: check back for updates on the bill number and what you can do.
