COLUMBUS – Scott Wiggam (R-Wooster) today announced the passage of House Bill 59, his legislation to make the month of April Ohio Native Plant Month.


HB 59 seeks to increase public awareness of Ohio’s native plants and the many benefits native plants have on the health of Ohio’s environment, including pollinators, and the potential benefit to Ohio’s economy.


“Ohio Native Plant Month will help the nursery and landscaping industries have a platform for boosting sales and will increase public awareness of the positive environmental impact that native plants have on our local ecosystem,” said Rep. Wiggam.                                                                                                                                      


HB 59 passed the Ohio House unanimously and will now head to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
