Kauai County Council Approves GMO Bill

The Kauai County Council voted 6-1 just after 3:30 a.m. Wednesday to approve an amended bill that calls for mandatory disclosure of pesticides use and genetically modified crops by large agribusinesses on the island. Businesses that use more than five pounds or 15 gallons of restricted use pesticides annually, must disclose that.  The bill will take effect nine months from Wednesday.
