There is a small piece of legislation hidden in the new senate budget called the Farmers provision assurance act would eliminate any legal liability Monanto would face for their GMO. Please contact your rep. for what little good it might do.

Heres more and action link http://www.organicconsumers.org/bytes/ob338.htm

The rider would allow new genetically engineered crops to be planted even when courts rule that the US Department of Agriculture has approved them illegally. According to the courts, this results in "the potential elimination of a farmer's choice to grow non-genetically engineered crops, or a consumer's choice to eat non-genetically engineered food."
