A law has been snuck into the Agriculture Appropriations bill – which will be approved by March 27th – which would destroy the separation of powers by stripping courts of the power to challenge genetically modified foods.
The “Monsanto Rider” (section 735) uses “farmer-friendly” happy talk,
but is an iron-fisted ploy to allow GMO crops to be planted even if a
court has ruled that planting them is illegal.
If the United States Department of Agriculture – which suffered “regulatory capture” by the big food companies
decades ago – approves a genetically modified food without any testing,
a court can enjoin (i.e. halt) production of that food until testing
Yet the Monsanto Rider would strip the courts of that power, and would
allow GMO crops to be planted and put in our food … no matter what a
judge has ruled.
