Don’t let Scotts walk away scott free again like they are in Malheur county after their Genetically Engineered (GE) bent grass escaped and harmed both farmers and the county. Why should farmers and the county taxpayers have to pay for patent holder's negligence and faulty products when they escape and contaminate farmers’ fields and public waterways?
HB 2739-1 (dash-1) is a bill to protect from the financial losses due to contamination from GE crops by holding the patent holders financially responsible for the damages they cause to others. Oregon has no rules or regulations to protect us from unwanted GE contamination.
Take action now and tell our elected officials to support HB 2739-1 (dash-1) before the session comes to a close.
Write your Oregon state representative and state senator today letting them know you want them to support HB 2739-1 (dash-1).
