Tell Congress to Dump the Monsanto Rider 


The biotech industry has quietly inserted a dangerous policy rider into the Agriculture Appropriations bill now being considered in Congress. Though wrapped in a “farmer-friendly” package, this “farmer assurance provision” is simply a biotech industry ploy to continue to plant GE crops even when a court of law has found they were approved illegally. This potentially unconstitutional provision undermines the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) oversight of GE crops and interferes with the U.S. judicial review process.

There is only a short period of time for Congress to resolve the Appropriations Bill before the end of the lame duck session. Please tell your Representative to support Representative DeFazio’s Dear Colleague letter opposing the biotech rider and ask your Senators to urge Senate Appropriations Chairman Inouye to oppose the rider!
