You can sign Merkley's petition here:My Friends,
It's one of the most outrageous special interest provisions in years.
Written anonymously, the Monsanto Protection Act allows corporations to sell genetically-modified seeds even when federal courts have blocked them from doing so.
Think about that: We have a process for making sure that genetically-modified seeds aren’t sold, planted and grown until we know that they don’t pose a threat to other crops or to humans.
The Monsanto Protection Act overrides that process.
It lets Monsanto and others ignore a court order designed to protect other farmers, the environment, and human health.
That’s just wrong.
Please sign my petition to repeal the Monsanto Protection Act:
And even worse, the Monsanto Protection Act was passed in secret, stuffed quietly into the budget bill that averted a government shutdown.
That's why I've proposed an amendment to the Farm Bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act.
Please join me - and demand a vote in the U.S. Senate that would end this outrageous special interest override of judicial decisions:
Senator Jeff Merkley
