NEXT FARM BILL COULD INCLUDE NEONIC BAN

Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., is hoping to tack on a bill banning neonicotinoids to next year’s farm bill. Currently, 31 Democrats are backing the Saving America’s Pollinators Act, which would suspend the approval of neonic pesticides until the U.S. EPA can determine that they won’t harm pollinators, based on peer-reviewed studies.
