House Extends Monsanto Protection Act

House passes a rider which protects biotech giants like Monsanto from being sued in federal court

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives released a bill to extend the agricultural spending bill known as the "Monsanto protection act". This bill allows Monsanto to continue to sell their crops even if a federal court deems it illegal.

Joining Real News to discuss the controversial bill is Colin O'Neil. He's the director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety, a national organization founded to protect human health and the environment.
