Script for calling/emailing [personalize with your own words]:

“Hello, my name is [Your Name], and I'm your constituent calling from [Your Location]. I am calling today to express my support for the Local Control of Pesticide Use bill that is slated to be introduced during this legislative session. Expanded local control would allow communities to protect water sources, create buffer zones to protect natural resources, and increase protections for vulnerable populations such as children.

[Optional] Share a brief personal story or connection to the issue if you have one.

I believe that my community should have the option to adopt local ordinances that could protect special resources and community health. Under current state law, this is not possible. I urge [Name of Legislator/Local Official] to support the Local Control of Pesticide Use bill. 

[If communicating with a local official] Please consider signing this letter in support of local control. I appreciate your time and dedication to serving our community, and I’m confident that your support will have a positive impact. Thank you for considering my perspective on this important issue. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss this further.

I look forward to seeing positive changes in our community.”
