With Mayor’s veto of anti-GMO bill on verge of being upheld, bill supporters force Kauai Council to postpone vote

(Summary)

Faced with the the prospect that there were not enough votes on the Kauai County Council to overturn Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr’s veto of the anti-GMO Bill 2491, bill supporters led by Gary Hooser moved for a recess. The technical maneuver was designed to buy time, so the Council can appoint a new member, which the anti-GMO bill supporters hope will join their coalition.

After choosing a new council member, the veto debate will resume on Saturday, November 16.
