The Botany Bill

Add some more info about this item...

On March 6, 2019, Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL) and Representative Francis Rooney (R-FL) introduced the Botanical Sciences & Native Plant Materials Research, Restoration and Promotion Act (the Botany Bill), a legislative priority of the GCA. CT Congressman Jim Himes is a co-sponsor of the Bill.

The Botany Bill, H.R. 1572, promotes botanical research, the hiring of botanists and a preference for native plants. It would create a student loan repayment program for botanical scientists to encourage more students to enter the field and would require states to utilize native plant species where possible and practical.
