Native Plants, Bees, Child Safety Win, Wildlife Awaits Action in 2023 Legislative Session
The Adirondack Council is celebrating passage of three bills that would protect birds and bees from pesticides, protect native aquatic plants from invasive species, and protect the integrity of the NY Constitution’s “forever wild” clause.
The Council is also urging the NYS Assembly to pass two bills already passed by the Senate, when the Assembly returns on June 20. Those bills would ban contests that reward the killing of wildlife, and would require state transportation officials to provide better protections to wildlife at highway crossings. Top priority sites would get federal funding to facilitate their construction.
