Andrzejczak & Caride Bills to Protect and Promote New Jersey's Beekeeping Industry Now Law
Bills Designed to Boost Key N.J. Agricultural Industry(TRENTON) - Legislation Assembly Democrats Bob Andrzejczak and Marlene Caride sponsored to protect and promote New Jersey's beekeeping industry and the vital role it plays in New Jersey's agricultural community was signed into law on Friday.
The three bills originated from the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee chaired by Andrzejczak. The General Assembly approved the measures last June.
"Bees are an essential part of agriculture nationwide, needed to pollinate about a third of the food people consume, including important New Jersey crops such as apples, blueberries, cantaloupes, cranberries, cucumbers, peaches, pumpkins, squash and strawberries," said Andrzejczak (D-Atlantic/Cape May/Cumberland). "Yet, we also know of the problems faced by the industry with a decline in the honey bee population. The new laws will help to protect this industry and our farming communities."
