Repeal the Monsanto Protection Act

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Written anonymously and passed in secret, the Monsanto Protection Act allows agri-business to ignore court orders blocking the sale of genetically-engineered seeds.

I support the repeal of this outrageous special interest provision - and demand a public vote in the U.S. Senate.

Why is this important?

It's one of the most outrageous special interest provisions in years.

Written anonymously, the Monsanto Protection Act allows corporations to sell genetically-modified seeds even when federal courts have blocked them from doing so.

Think about that: We have a process for making sure that genetically-modified seeds aren’t sold, planted and grown until we know that they don’t pose a threat to other crops or to humans.

The Monsanto Protection Act overrides that process. It lets Monsanto and others ignore a court order designed to protect other farmers, the environment, and human health.

That's just wrong.

And even worse, the Monsanto Protection Act was passed in secret, stuffed quietly into the budget bill that averted a government shutdown.

That's why I've proposed an amendment to the Farm Bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act. Please join me - and demand a vote in the U.S. Senate that would end this outrageous special interest override of judicial decisions.
