The Monsanto Protection Act (HR 5973)
H.R. 5973 (otherwise known as The Monsanto Protection Act) carries a small rider in section 733 that grants biotech companies free reign with little oversight. The legal team at the Center for Food Safety translates section 733 as a "dangerous assault on fundamental federal and judicial safeguards" and "would create a precedent-setting limitation on judicial review." Food Democracy Now states that, if allowed to pass, The Monsanto Protection Act "fundamentally undermines the concept of judicial review and would strip judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer rights and the environment, while opening up the floodgates for the planting of new untested genetically engineered crops, endangering farmers, consumers and the environment."

Well if what I read was right the Monsanto protection act was an april fools joke. It doesn't actually give new powers that Monsanto didn't already have. If you read the bill. At least what I read. In otherwords passing a bill that doesn't do anything would be considered a prank to make people think Monsanto had the power over the U.S. once the idea is created its tougher to stop rumors. Or perhaps maybe what I read on the bill was wrong and someone should check me.
