The latest on the Botany Bill:

A big WELCOME to our new supporters. The launch of our new website led to an influx of supporters receiving communication about House Resolution 1054, a.k.a. the Botany Bill. Please continue to share the new website ( and let us know if you have any feedback.

In addition, we’ve added FOUR cosponsors to the Bill since the beginning of March, for a total of 23 House cosponsors. (Seventy-two organizations have endorsed The Botanical Sciences and Native Plant Materials Research, Restoration, and Promotion Act as of December 7, 2017)

Thank you for your efforts contacting your congressmen about the Bill! If you recently reached out to your congressman please let us know so we can track our efforts and coordinate follow up communication.

These recent developments are great for generating momentum for the Bill. It bears repeating that this is a marathon, not a sprint, so we have plenty of work ahead of us. In 2018 we are particularly focused on growing bipartisan support for the Bill, and are grateful for your ongoing support and outreach efforts!
