Ohio Green Advocacy Day sponsored by Ohio PLANT is slated this year for Wednesday, February 22 in downtown Columbus. The day consists of a morning of speakers from the legislature and the Department of Agriculture and the afternoon will consist of appointments with your elected state representative and state senator’s office. These relationships, coupled with the work of Ohio PLANT and OTF’s lobbying team, helped push HB 507 into law. The bill created preemption of the ban of pesticide use on private property. This measure will prevent local municipalities from creating their own rules regarding pesticide use on private property.
The Ohio Turfgrass Foundation (OTF) is once again a sponsor of this event which includes 7 complimentary registrations. We want to have a strong presence at the event from the turfgrass industry. If you are able to attend, please contact Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so appointments can be made with your elected officials.
