Hawaii County council committee passes restrictions for GMO and biotechnology companies
A Hawaii County Council committee has passed a bill that would ban biotech companies and the expansion of genetically modified crops on the island.
Our partners at Civil Beat report that the Council's Public Safety and Mass Transit Committee passed bill 113 on Tuesday with a majority vote.
The bill now goes to the full county council for review.
This move comes just after another GMO bill moved forward on Kauai on Friday.
