Update #1 ·

Good Riddance. We Hope.

It’s not a done deal yet. But we’re close to scoring a huge victory: the end of the Monsanto Protection Act. 

Today, Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), Chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, proposed and the Senate passed an alternative to the House version of the Continuing Resolution, a bill to fund the federal government beyond Sept. 30, 2013. Absent from the new-and-improved version is the Farmers Assurance Provision, that sneaky, Monsanto-friendly “policy rider” better known as the Monsanto Protection Act.

On Tuesday, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) told Poltico: “That provision will be gone.” Gone from the Senate version. But will the House approve the Senate’s new Continuing Resolution?

There’s no guarantee the Senate and House will come to terms on any new bill. Much less one without the Monsanto Protection Act. In the meantime, we hope. And we keep up the pressure on our Senators.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress to vote NO on the Continuing Resolution unless the Monsanto Protection Act is removed!
