Allow cities & counties to regulate GMOs. Stop the Oregon Monsanto Protection Act.
During this year’s regular legislative session, the Oregon House blocked the Oregon Monsanto Protection Act (SB 633), a bill that would have stripped the ability of local jurisdictions to regulate genetically-modified crops.
For the upcoming special session’s “Grand Bargain”, Republicans have decided that doing the bidding of powerful chemical companies and out-of-state groups is more important than doing what’s right for family farmers and food safety. They’ve shoved the Oregon Monsanto Protection Act into the bargain in exchange for their support of unrelated revenue.
Sign the petition NOW and ask Governor Kitzhaber to pull the Oregon Monsanto Protection Act from the special session agenda.

To Governor Kitzhaber:
We oppose efforts to stop local governments from taking action against GMO seed and products. Any threat to Oregon's organic agriculture is a threat to our economy and the family farming tradition of our state. We strongly urge you to remove the Oregon Monsanto Protection Act, from the agenda for the special session.
