    GovTrack: H.R. 875: Text of Legislation, Introduced in House

    Sounds like there might be some internet hysteria..

    OpEdNews » HR 875 - Monsanto's Dream Bill or an Internet Rumor

    Try not to trust agenda driven blogs.. there are usually two sides..

    More info this AM.. apparently the author of this internet rumor has a huge beef with Monsanto.. and has been spreading this stuff all over the internet.. don't diss the source as they have been in contact with Rep DeLauro for clarification and subsequently DeLauro has been working with Organic Farmers....

    I actually read the bill. The only thing I noticed was that the bill does not define waivers for small backyard crops and animals for the family consumption.

    Did you find in the bill where the cause for alarm is, pf13?

    this looks like nothing...

    however, i will say Monsanto is not the most ethical company.... that's been proven with the lawsuit they outlasted regarding sick cows and altered milk...
