Support the Botany Bill

   SUPPORT THE BOTANY BILL    

The Botanical Sciences and Native Plant Materials Research, Restoration and Promotion Act, HR 1054, was introduced in the US House of Representatives in February, and is making its way through congressional committees.  The bill currently has 17 cosponsors, not including any of our New Mexico representatives.  Last year, the NPSNM Board of Directors voted to join the Plant Conservation Alliance in endorsing this legislation.  The Botany Bill proposes to promote botanical research and sciences and generate demand for native plant materials in the federal agencies.  Read a summary of the bill here.  Members are encouraged to contact your representative and ask them to support HR 1054 and consider becoming a cosponsor.  It is most effective if you are able to meet with your representative in person, but if that is not possible, here is their contact information to send an email,  postcard or phone call:
