Petition Statement

N.Y.S. has sprayed pesticides containing glyphosate, a probable carcinogen, on all state roads, including along reservoirs and streams for thirty years. It will cost less in dollars and less in environmental damage to our pollinators and our health to plant wildflowers and milkweed like the state of Illinois.
There are currently 1,234 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I have been studying monarch butterflies for over forty years. In just the past 20 years we have lost 90% of them. We are losing our bees at an unsustainable rate of 30% a year. We all have to take action. N.Y.S. is on the monarch migration path and we are contributing to their demise. It is time to stop 30 years of pesticide spraying along all our roads.
