Today, Senators Paul Pinsky and Shirley Nathan-Pulliam introduced their antibiotics bill. We’re hoping to see Delegates Shane Robinson and Clarence Lam’s bill introduced soon.
Will report back as soon as we have a bill number and can link to the text.
Update: The bill number is SB 607.
Update 2: The text of the bill to ban non therapeutic use of antibiotics on food-producing animals is now available here.
In the meantime, here is a blogpost from Mae Wu at NRDC about the bill and some great polling on Marylanders’ opinion on the issue.
