This second piece in the series looks at the issue of genetically modified organisms and ALEC’s connection to the effort to legalize them in Oregon. ALEC’s Energy, Environment and Agricultural Task Force was instrumental in drafting several bills that became law in Oregon that prevented opposition to farming practices and later, prevented restrictions on agribusinesses.
