Save the Bees

Bees are an essential part to agriculture, responsible for the pollination of 71 out of 100 of the crops that make up 90% of the world's food supply. They are being killed by neonicotinoids in pesticides. If we don't put a stop to this, all of the bees will eventually be killed. We would like to propose a bill that will do the following.
- Neonicotinoids in any capacity are hereby banned in pesticide production and use.
- Farmers continuing neonicotinoid use will be punished with loss of farm subsidies for fifteen years (five half-lives of standard neonicotinoids).
- This legislation will be screened by the EPA and enforced by the USDA.
- All laws in conflict with this legislation are hereby declared null and void.
