The Save the Honey Bee License Plate is one step closer to becoming a reality. On Tuesday, December 9th, HB 474 will be presented to the transportation committee of the Ohio Senate. This is the next step towards it becoming law making the license plate available. But we need your help! Please use the link below to write your senator and Senator Manning, the chair of the transportation committee, to show your support for the license plate.
Show your support for H.B. 474, the Save the Honey Bee License Plate bill. State Representatives Mike Dovilla (R-Berea) and Dorothy Pelanda (R-Marysville) announced on March 18th, 2014 the introduction of House Bill 474, legislation designed to support Ohio’s beekeepers through the creation of the Ohio State Beekeepers Association license plate fund. H.B. 474 creates the “Save The Honey Bee” license plate. This license plate will bring the honeybee plight to the forefront of public awareness, promote beekeeping, provide educational information about beekeeping, and support state and local beekeeping programs and research.
Show your support of H.B.474 and send an email to your State Senator. Action is needed by Dec. 8th!
Thank you for your support,
Ohio State Beekeepers Association
and, Pollinator Stewardship Council
