Stop Monsanto from undermining protections from GMOs
Recently, President Obama signed the Continuing Resolution spending bill with a dangerous corporate earmark, known as the “biotech rider,” or “Monsanto Protection Act” in the Continuing Resolution spending bill. The rider prevents Monsanto's GMO products from being regulated. The Big Ag giant now has immunity from any federal laws that are placed on genetically modified crops while communities wait for results from environmental impact studies, and it wants to block the USDA’s ability to regulate the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Fortunately, this bill is only in effect for six months. We must make sure Monsanto can’t slip a similar rider into the next round of appropriations bills. Corporate Accountability International is partnering with the Organic Consumers Association on this campaign to build grassroots pressure on Congress to counter the corporate lobbyists.
