State Rep. Mike D'Agostino Testifies on Tree Removal Bill

February 10, 2017

I just testified at the Environment Committee's public hearing on a bill (HB 6123) that I co-introduced to help control the tree removal work that the state Department of Transportation (DOT) has been doing on our state highways. This year, DOT intends to spend another $2 million removing trees, without any concrete plan for the removal of debris, and re-planting to prevent invasive species or ground erosion. This bill would require DOT to justify the work it is proposing before it is done, if it should be done at all. I spoke out against this practice and if you agree with me, I ask you to continue to support this bill (HB 6123) by contacting the Environment Committee at (860) 240-0440.

Thanks for your support, as always.

Mike D'Agostino
