Nicotine-based pesticides (neonics) came onto the market nearly thirty years ago. Since then, research has concluded that the increase in their use is leading to significant declines in insect populations, particularly important pollinators such as domestic and wild honey bees. Governor Hochul holds the authority to safeguard the well-being of New Yorkers and the ecological health of the Hudson River. Today, she can take nation-leading action by signing the Birds and Bees Protection Act (A7640/S1856A) into law.
