[Originating in the Committee on Agriculture]


Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the apiculture industry in West Virginia.

Whereas, Honeybees are essential to the survival of agriculture by providing for the pollenation of fruit trees, vegetables and flowers; and
Whereas, Apiarists and apiaries provide for the management and maintenance of honeybees; and
Whereas, West Virginia's bee-keeping industry has been affected by price competition from imports and complications from the spread of parasitic mites and colony collapse disorder; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the apiculture industry in West Virginia; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations;
and, be it
Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
