More unspeakable evil on the seed front

Yes, a topic that enrages me almost as much as the pointlessness of war and America's embrace of it: SEEDS!

Here is a disgusting piece from Environmental Commons describing efforts by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), "a self-described Beltway lobbying group made up of state politicians and the neoconservative business leaders who pay for them (Altria, Koch Industries, Coors, PhRMA -- the usual suspects), [and their] stealth campaign to bypass the electorate and introduce legislation at the state level preventing counties, towns, and cities from passing laws that prohibit genetically modified crops or livestock."

Here, from the same site, is a seed law backgrounder as well as a seed and plant law preemption tracker, and an earlier post of mine on some of the same topics.
