Across the country, biotechnology companies like Monsanto are filing lawsuits against farmers whose crops are contaminated by Genetically-Engineered (GE) seeds and pollen. SB 303 would have protected New Mexico farmers from liability when they accidentally come into possession of GE seeds, as well as from unreasonable and unannounced inspections of their private property. Moreover, the measure would have established New Mexico as the appropriate venue for any legal action - not Missouri or some other state chosen by the biotechnology company.
Defeated in the Senate.
