Monsanto Protection Act backlash prompted some food activists to place the blame for the GMO legislation at Senator Barbara Mikulski’s feet. Some of those opposed to allowing GMO ingredients in food products without labeling blame the Democrat for allowing the biotech rider to find its way into the new law. The GMO seeds portion of the act was reportedly added to the bill last month. Senator Barbara Mikulski is the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee. President Barack Obama singed the GMO biotech rider section of HR 933 into law. (via Monsanto Protection Act Now ‘Disavowed’ By Senate Appropriations Chair)
