*************
The Issue: Section 735 of the Senate Version of HR 933 (The Appropriations Bill That Will Keep the Government Funded Through September 30.) This provision is intended to give the Secretary of Agriculture the authority to ignore court rulings barring the planting of GMO seeds. Monsanto, Bayer, and others (with the Gate Foundation an major stockholder of Monsanto doing a lot of lobbying) want to get their seeds planted without proving safety

The Solution: Senate Amendment 74 introduced by Senator Jon Tester with Senators Leahy, Gillibrand,Boxer, Begich, and Blumenthal would strike Section 735
