Hamped Up  

Earlier this week, the ISW blogged (and maybe even ranted a little) about an attempt in the New Hampshire legislature to circumvent a ban on invasive plants that's been many years in the making.

I am now pleased to report that, according to the Portsmouth Herald, the offending provision has been killed. The best part is that it sounds like smart nursery owners may have had something to do with the decision. Not only do several of them speak out in the Herald article, but as one senator put it, "We heard from people that we had sidelined a well established study process." Nice job!
