*Josephine County, Oregon passed a ballot measure to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered crops (Measure 17-58) on May 20, 2014. It was approved by 58% of the voters. The county was subsequently sued by a couple of plaintiffs who claimed that the measure was preempted and invalidated by state law - SB 863. That court decision is currently pending appeal. See Oregonions for Safe Farms and Families for the latest updates. Our Family Farms supports the right of all farmers to protect themselves against the threat of genetically engineered crops.
