Ban Bee-Killing Pesticides
Millions of bees are dying at unprecedented rates, with real consequences for our food supply, environment and economy. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from broccoli to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. Simply put, no bees means no food. Given what’s at stake, we must do more to stop the bee die-offs and help them rebound.
It's clear. Unless and until it's proven safe, we should ban Roundup.

Renting a new place is exciting, whether it’s your first time or not. But it’s also filled with potential landmines to avoid.
Big Money Out
Birmingham Northern Beltline, Alabama
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) is pushing forward with the $5.3 billion Birmingham Northern Beltline (BNB), a 52-mile, 6-lane expressway connecting I-59 northeast and southwest of Birmingham. The project is almost entirely reliant on intermittent and insufficient federal funding, scheduled to take at least 40 years to complete, and, if built, will threaten damage to two watersheds that are important sources of drinking water for Birmingham.

C-470 Express Lanes, Colorado
Local and state officials are eagerly pushing forward on a $230 million project to add new tolled “express” lanes along an existing 12-mile stretch of a road southwest of Denver that was built in the late 1980s. The original Colorado 470 encouraged the expansion of far-flung development, benefiting a set of suburban land developers. But recent analysis suggests that expanding the highway would deliver little net benefit, and that the expanded highway may not receive as much use as planners anticipate.
