So, what does local GMO measure 2-89 do? What are the pros and cons?
Ballots will be mailed April 30, and due back on May 19. Measure 2-89 mandates that all genetically modified organisms in Benton County be harvested, removed, or destroyed within 90 days if it passes; it makes use of these organisms illegal after that. The measure envisions an enforcement regime decided by county supervisors, as well as standing for individual residents to bring legal actions.
