Residential Honey Beekeeping

To be delivered to The Oregon State House, The Oregon State Senate, Governor John Kitzhaber, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Residential honey beekeeping should fall under state, not city, jurisdiction to end discrimination occurring at the city level. Management oversight should reside with the state's Beekeepers Association.
There are currently 4,446 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Honeybees are vital to our food supply, representing 70% of pollination activity. Honeybees are in serious decline. Changing residential honey beekeeping to state jurisdiction will remove existing discrimination at the city level, which is prohibiting and limiting beekeeping. It will enable standardized rules to be implemented and will contribute to better management oversight. This is a necessary step in the fight to save our bees.
