Forum Post: Senate veto of biotech protection order.

The US House of Representatives approved a three-month extension to the rider in their own short-term FY14 Continuing Resolution spending bill, which was approved last week by the lower chamber.

The Senate version of the legislation will make clear the provision expires on Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year.

“That provision will be gone,” Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) told Politico.

Pryor chairs the Senate subcommittee on agriculture appropriations.

The Center for Food Safety said the Senate’s eradication of the rider was “a major victory for the food movement” and a “sea change in a political climate that all too often allows corporate earmarks to slide through must-pass legislation.”

If I were to identify successes of ows, basically by creating some solidarity and info streams on GMO's, this kind of legislation might indirectly be one.

Good to see the mass media picking this story up, and celebrating the win with all concerned Americans.

There is something quite insane about what corporate science is doing with genetics.

Even media sees it.

Population control, 101.

A market-driven change is in the air.

Consumers need to be aware of their power.

Which poster wanted to revise the first amendment? They had language that implied something radical that made it so the informed public could get vital info to the general public which raised and set the bar for msm.

I was researching it a month or so after a site search on Article V.

That's what free speech is for.
