The Pollinator Partnership's Highways BEE Act, which is a “win-win,” common sense approach that helps cash-strapped States save taxpayer dollars through reduced mowing on highway right-of-ways, provides improved habitat for pollinators. The legislation also encourages states to plant native forbs and grasses on highway right-of-ways to further improve pollinator habitat. Your support can make a difference in efforts to include the Highways BEE Act provisions in the final transportation reauthorization legislation, which is expected to move through Congress in the coming weeks.
