LawnHARRISBURG – The fertilizer bill expected to be introduced by Senator Mike Brubaker (R-Lancaster) has not yet shown up. PLNA had expected it to be introduced in the Senate in mid-June, according to Brubaker’s staff.

In the meantime, PLNA government relations consultant Gregg Robertson has been meeting with staff from both the Senate Agriculture and Rural Affairs and Environmental Resources and Energy Committees to brief them on PLNA’s analysis of the impact of the draft bill on the industry and water quality in the Chesapeake Bay. The bill will probably go to one of these committees when it is introduced.

Data in a recent report by a panel of expert commissioned by EPA indicates that the bill may actually worsen stormwater runoff from lawns in the Chesapeake Bay.

For more information on the draft bill, search the PLNA website using the keyword "fertilizer.”
