Hidden within a
large federal spending bill is a proposal for $3 million to go towards consumer
education and outreach to “promote understanding and acceptance of agricultural
biotechnology” to be carried out by the FDA and the USDA.
In plain English,
this proposal would spend taxpayer dollars on an effort to convince Americans
that GMOs are just fine, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.
Write to your congressional representatives and urge them to
block the provisions in the spending bill that would use taxpayer money to
lobby on behalf of Monsanto and the biotech industry!
Please OPPOSE rider using taxpayer dollars to lobby for Monsanto
Dear [Decision Maker],
