On September 10, 2020, in her role as Chair of Council’s Health and Human Services Committee, 8th District City Councilwoman Cindy Bass introduced legislation titled “Healthy Outdoor Public Spaces”, landmark environmental and public health legislation that will curb the use of toxic herbicides on publicly owned grounds and would establish transparent and public reporting protocols for any other pesticide used on public lands.
Thank you to HOPS co-sponsors, City Councilmembers Parker, Jones, Thomas, Domb, Gilmore-Richardson, Johnson, Gautier, and Kendra Brooks!
Many of you have worked to make this bill a reality for our city, and we can’t thank you enough. But we still have to get the bill passed.
