Stop the Monsanto Rider

[What do genetically engineered crops have to do with spending bills?]

The Senate is voting on amendments to a continuing resolution spending bill with a dangerous Monsanto rider that would allow industry to continue growing genetically engineered food that may not be safe. We need your help immediately to stop this rider.

The Monsanto rider would strip federal courts of their authority to halt the sale and planting of an illegal, potentially hazardous genetically engineered crop. It would compel the U.S. Department of Agriculture to allow continued planting of that same crop upon request.

Luckily, Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) has introduced an amendment that would block the Monsanto rider and close this backdoor approval for genetically engineered crops.
