Give Bees a Chance
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
New York, NY –
Give bees a chance -- so says a group of renegade beekeepers. They want the city to legalize beekeeping instead of fining people up to $2,000 for tending a hive.
Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer declared his support for beekeeping, which he says is a step toward a greener city.
STRINGER: Free the bees, create honey, create jobs, protect our environment and let's create a real buzz on what is going to be the new movement.
The City Council has yet to hold a hearing on the beekeeping bill, but its sponsor, Councilman David Yassky, says he hopes it'll get some traction in the next few months.
