Maryland governor expected to ban bee-killing pesticides in US first. Started with MO'M.

'Larry Hogan (R) seems to be given full credit for it if he signs this when the bill was actually passed my MD's Democratic-controlled legislature.

The declining bee population on Earth has been linked with widespread use of a class of pesticides called neonicotinoids. While the chemicals have already been banned in several countries, they are still widely used in the United States. Maryland, however, is the first state poised to approve a measure that bans the pesticides, after losing 60 percent of its hives last year. The pending legislation has passed the state’s upper and lower chambers, and now awaits the signature of Governor Larry Hogan, which is expected.'

2. Great news

I'm pretty well convinced that neonics and other agro-chemicals are not the sole problem, but they are part of the problem.
I applaud anyone who's looking out for our pollinators, and I'm not surprised that would be Martin O'Malley.
