Santa Cruz Live Oak Grange #503

Santa Cruz CA 95062-1806
|Event Type||Panel Discussion|
The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors just unanimously approved an ordinance that institues a precautionary ban on growing genetically-modified crops in Santa Cruz County until the state institutes regulations that meet five minimum requirements. Now the state is moving forward with a bill to preempt local control of genetically-modified crops without instituting any regulatory oversight. Join us for a trip to Sacramento where we will lobby the Assembly Agriculture Committee as they hold a public hearing on this bill. The grange will provide free transportation to anyone who want to join us. Meet at the grange at 8 AM.
If you would like come prepared with something to say!!!
