HB 790 fails

The Hawaii House of Representatives today voted to recommit House Bill 790 HD3, which means the wide-ranging pesticide disclosure and regulatory bill is dead for the session.

Many thanks to the Hawaii Farm Bureau members and supporters who signed on to our call to defeat the bill, and also to those who directly contacted their Representatives to share their views on this unwarranted and over-reaching legislation.

And a hearty mahalo nui loa to the House members who heard our call and support a healthy, viable agricultural sector in Hawaii.
