LEADING POLITICAL ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATION SEES PROGRESS ON 2021 LEGISLATIVE AGENDA
TRENTON – The following statement is from Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, celebrating the passage of S1016 - restricting the use of neonicotinoid pesticides.
“It’s time that our pollinators are protected,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey LCV. “In New Jersey honeybees are a $7 million industry and they help pollinate nearly $200 million worth of fruits and vegetables annually – and neonicotinoid pesticides are a major threat to the species that fuel these industries. We are proud to see the New Jersey Senate move to protect our pollinators by restricting the use of these dangerous insecticides and we urge the Assembly leaders to follow suit.”
