MA BILL H731 HEARING IS THE WEEK OF JULY 20 -- PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS
There is a bill related to honeybees and beekeeping coming up for review in our state legislature which deserves your attention, as it will have an impact on all of us and on our bees if it goes forward. At our June WCBA meeting we discussed this issue and voted to send a letter from our club formally opposing this bill, H731, which will provide for changes to the current regulations regarding beekeeping in Massachusetts.
Please contact Dick Callahan or Ken Warchol with any questions.
