I agree with Obama again!

This makes it twice this year!

Obama signed a protection act about GM foods that has some leftist groups in an uproar.  Before I saw anything about this, I was pretty sure that Obama must have done the right thing.  If Obama signs something about GM foods, and the anti-science left is upset, it had to be a good law, right?

Jayson Lusk's blog has a nice write up and finds other sources as well..  It seems quite clear this is a good law.

The main point seems to be (see link from Bier):

"The so-called “Monsanto Protection Act” actually does nothing to protect Monsanto. Rather, it protects the farmers that bought Monsanto seeds and planted them under the belief that it was legal to do so by granting them temporary permits for the existing crops in the ground, which have already been subjected to extensive USDA scrutiny."
