This week, the Senate will send a Continuing Resolution (CR)
for the “must-pass” FY 2013 Appropriations bill to the House Conference
Committee. The CR includes the so-called Farmer Assurance Provision (Section
735), which 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. This biotech-driven
rider is simply an industry ploy to continue to plant GE crops even when a
court of law has found they were approved illegally.
Please personalize if you have the time!
