Tell Congress Not to Let Agribusiness Write its Own Rules!
On the heels of the “Monsanto rider” inserted into the House Agriculture Appropriations Bill a few weeks ago, the Agbiotech Industry’s latest ploy has hit the House Farm Bill in the form of multiple hidden changes to the laws governing genetically engineered (GE) crop oversight. Together, these industry-promoting “riders” in the House seek to override judicial review of GE crops found to have been approved illegally, gut USDA analysis requirements, create a forced backdoor approval of “Agent Orange” corn and other GE crops and to compel a first-ever policy for allowable levels of transgenic contamination in America’s crops and food supply. If passed, these riders would undermine the few laws that are currently in place to protect farmers’ rights, our health and our environment from the many adverse impacts of GE crops.
