Change or More of the Same on GMOs?

Tell Obama & Vilsack: Drop Bush's Pro-GMO Rules

Just before leaving office, the Bush Administration released a proposed rule that would significantly weaken the regulation of genetically engineered crops. The rule would increase contamination of organic and conventional crops and release the USDA from responsibility for taking action to remedy such contamination. Moreover, the rule would continue to allow the dangerous practice of producing drugs and industrial chemicals in food crops grown outdoors. Finally, the proposed rule would give industry the power to decide whether their new genetically engineered crops should be subject to regulation in the first place.

Tell Barky Obama and Dillsack what you think here...
