BIO testimony opposing CA Assembly Bill 984 regarding manufacturer liability for agricultural biotechnology products.

On behalf of the members of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO)—which works closely in California with its affiliates BayBio, BIOCOM, and CHI, please accept this testimony in opposition to Assembly Bill 984. The bill provides “that the manufacturer of a genetically engineered plant…is liable to any producer, grain, and seed cleaner, handler, or processor injured by the release of that plant into California.” These agricultural products on the market have proven to be effective for farmers, highly regulated and as safe as conventional and organic products, and pose no unique threat. As you deliberate this proposed legislation, we hope you will consider these facts.
