Aloha,
We need to reach out to a broader concerned citizenry as we face our greatest challenge yet. After a brief victory, a year without spraying adjacent Waimea Canyon Middle School, see the following House Bill currently before us. The lessee grows GMO Corn. This House Bill 1226 would eliminate efforts to create pesticide free buffer-zones around schools.


HB 1226 RELATING TO GENETICALLY MODIFIED PLANT ORGANISMS. AGR
Preempts certain state administrative regulatory actions and county regulatory actions relating to genetically modified plant organisms. Excepts from the preemption any county ordinance that took effect before 01/01/09 and made unlawful certain actions relating to particular species of genetically modified plant organisms. Excepts also from the preemption any state administrative regulatory action or county regulatory action that bans, restricts, or otherwise regulates the growing of genetically modified taro.
