Don't Allow the Biotech Industry and USDA to Override Court Rulings!

This week, the House of Representatives will likely vote on the “must-pass” FY 2013 Ag Appropriations bill. A rider was added, the so-called Farmer Assurance Provision (Section 733), that will strip federal courts of the authority to halt the sale and planting of illegal, potentially hazardous GE crops while USDA is performing an environmental impact statement.

If this provision is becomes law, it will be a huge blow to the justice system, completely overriding judicial safeguards that protect both farmers and the public, and rendering judges’ rulings irrelevant.

Rep. Peter DeFazio is preparing an amendment to strike the pro-GMO rider from the bill. Please send your message to your congressional representative TODAY, and tell him or her to support the DeFazio amendment!
