(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.
