Vermont State House in MontpelierContact Your Legislators Today

After passing overwhelmingly in the VT house and senate, the pollinator protection bill, H706 was vetoed by the governor on World Bee Day.

He shared the same misleading information about bee populations that we have heard from the Agency of Agriculture, and declared the bill "anti-farmer".

The VT legislature is holding an override session on June 17th and 18th to consider overriding the governor's veto.

We need VBA members to reach out to their senators and representatives one last time this week to support this override effort.

Legislators have been hearing more and more from those against the bill, so it is incredibly important to express the importance of this legislation and our strong support for it. (Previously available background information is available here and here.)
