Does anyone know what the bill actually did? This wasnt a "Monsanto protection act," it was a farmer protection act.
The bill effectively allows a farmer to continue production on crops that for whatever reason are being re-regulated. These are only crops that have
been de-regulated in the first place, so basically it is a safety net for farmers who had already purchased seed, and had their next year's economic
plan laid out, and the government came in and regulated a certain type of seed.
Read the contents, not just the name. This bill really has zilch to do with Monsanto, aside from the fact that they sell seed.
Why wasnt it called the "Bayer Protection Act," "Syngenta Protection Act," or the "DuPont Protection Act?"
