The 1st lawsuits have been filed against the Kauai Island GMO bill

RECAP: All the bill does is require the seed companies (DuPont, Monsanto, Syngenta, BSAF, Pioneer, etc) (i) disclose WHAT they are spraying; (ii) WHEN they spray with 48 hours notice prior to spraying; and (iii) have a no-spray buffer zone of 100 ft (reduced from 500 ft) from schools, business, homes, people.

All of the companies above have jointly filed a lawsuit to stop implementation of the bill. The bill is reasonable and well written. The companies have poured money into the reelection accounts of the Kauai Mayor (vetoed the bill - County counsel over-rode the veto) and the Governor (spoke against the bill) and both are Democrats.

Attorneys have agreed to defend the County of Kauai pro bono. Keep good positive thought coming. If the lawsuit gets booted up to Federal Court the Island Kauai County has no chance against the current US Supreme Court. So much for State's rights.

Has anyone seen a post from MadamSilverSpurs?

I always enjoy her posts and haven't seen anything in days. MadamSilverHeels? OMG did I get the name wrong?
