The "Saving America's Pollinators Act of 2015" was signed into law by President Obama in mid 2015. This law is significant in three ways.
(1) It formally recognizes that neonicotinoid systemic pesticides pose a proven threat to the survival of honey bees, native pollinating insects, many invertebrates and vertebrates, and presents a contamination risk to drinking water supplies.
(2) It paves the way to banning the use of neonicotinoids.
(3) It tasks the Federal Government with monitoring the health of our nation's pollinators.
