Introductory Letter

The TBA officers released an introductory letter outlining the reasons beekeepers should support updating Chapter 131 of the Texas Agriculture Code.

TBA has worked for months with many of its members to craft legislation which would protect the interests of beekeepers in Texas as well as bring the existing bee laws, which were last updated in 1983, up to date.

The legislation is labeled House Bill 1293 and is sponsored by Representative Tracy King.
