  • Last October, residents in Cedar Valley, Oregon were doused with pesticides by a helicopter aiming for privately-owned timberlands. At least one appears to have suffered complications that led to death
  • The “Farm and Forest Practices Act” prevents the residents from suing for damages. But 17 of those affected by the pesticide dousing are now challenging the constitutionality of that law

  • GMA is also pushing a Congressional bill, the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014, dubbed the “DARK” (Denying Americans the Right to Know) Act, which would bar states from passing GMO labeling laws
