Oregon: Anti-GMO group renews push

An organization seeking to ban genetically modified crops is challenging Lane County officials’ rejection of its initiative.

Support Local Food Rights filed the challenge on July 25 in Lane County Circuit Court in response to the county clerk’s rejection of its initiative.

The initiative was rejected for failing to meet the requirement that an initiative can address only one issue or subject.

As an initial step in the circuit court review, Ann Kneeland, attorney and spokesperson for SLFR, is preparing a brief, due Aug. 9, that will explain how the initiative does comply with the single subject rule.
