Monsanto rider: New bill could make biotech companies immune to courts

If passed, an amendment in the Agricultural Appropriations Bill will
not just allow, but require the secretary of agriculture to grant
permits for planting or cultivating GM crops – even if a federal court
has given an injunction against it.

Basically, all Monsanto and other biotech companies have to do is ask
and the industry gets its way. Issues like crop contamination, damage
to farmers or consumers, courts orders or USDA studies all go out the
window and the biotech industry cashes in.
