If SB 633 passes, it will permanently strip Oregon's farmers and citizens of the right to make local agricultural decisions that protect area farmers, local economies and organic seed production.

We need your urgent attention to this sign on letter to support Oregon family farmers from a poorly written seed preemption bill, SB 633 - which is being called Oregon's Monsanto Protection Act. A Special Session will be held in the Oregon Legislature today (September 26 at 2:30 pm PST) and if SB 633 passes it could rob Oregon farmers of their rights to grow organic seeds and threaten the future of seed security.

Earlier this month, biotech lobbyists and industry front groups succeeded in attaching SB 633 to an unrelated tax and public pension reform package up for consideration during a special legislative session, which must be finalized by Sept 30th.

If SB 633 passes, it will permanently strip Oregonís farmers and citizens of the right to make local agricultural decisions that protect area farmers, local economies and organic seed production. Known as a seed preemption bill, Oregonís Monsanto Protection Act seeks to protect big biotech interests in Oregon. Oregon state is a leading producer of organic seed, and often considered a crown jewel of organic, non-GMO and heritage seed production, is being put at risk of permanent genetic pollution should this bill pass. The stakes couldnít be higher.

I think I sign too many petitions. This looks familiar and I may have signed from my emails. But signed again.
Thanks for taking action to stop Oregon's Monsanto Protection Act!
