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!
