For over the past year, the Ohio State Beekeepers Association has been working to DEVELOP a ‘Save the Honey’ license plate FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE OHIO STATE BUREAU OF MOTOR VEHICLES. This license plate will bring more public awareness about the plight of the honey bee and raise additional funds that OSBA can use to support education and beekeeping research. House Bill 474 has been proposed to create this license plate by Mike Dovilla (R-BEREA) and DOROTHY Pelanda (R-MARYSVILLE) and OSBA has been given very short notice to testify in front of the Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee ON TUESDAY (4/1).
However, We Need Your Help! In addition to our spoken testimony, we can submit letters of support. We are asking all local associations, companies and individuals to submit letters of support. You may use the attached sample letter to HELP YOU compose your letter of support.
Due to the very short notice OSBA has received on this, please submit letters by email to or via fax to 614-633-1036 so that we receive them in time for the meeting. Please have the letters in by midnight on MARCH 31st.
