RALLY and PUBLIC COMMENT at SPECIAL COMMISSIONERS MEETING TO STOP AERIAL SPRAYING and REFER the AERIAL SPRAY BAN LEGISLATION to THE PEOPLE OF LANE COUNTY:

* Lane County residents collected 30,000 signatures to demand a right to vote on these measures, and unless the commissioners refer them, democracy is denied.

* Lincoln County was allowed to vote on a much more far-reaching ban on aerial spraying, which passed, and for 2 years the people of Lincoln County have been safe from the hazards and harms of aerial pesticide use.

*Commissioners have a duty to refer the legislation to the people of Lane County so that they can choose to ban aerial spraying in the County.
