This bill is a scam, and Kurt Schrader (who claims to be "a man of science") fails Science 101 as he repeats false claims about GMOs. "Genetic engineering has been around for centuries. As a man of science, I'll tell you it's a lot safer to do it in a laboratory, where you can control those mutations" he states with extreme ignorance. Anyone who knows basics about how GMOs are made knows the process of genetic engineering itself causes hundreds to thousands of mutations to the target DNA. After tissue culture (which can cause more mutations), the plant cells are ultimately cultivated as plants, then backcrossing is required: the same techniques that he claims cannot control mutations, are a necessary step in producing a GM brand. Schrader is a "man of science" in the same way that Lucy from Charlie Brown fame is a psychiatrist. "The idea the people don't have cell phones is ludicrous" is not scientifically based observation; it is stupidity. Smart phones, not cell phones, are the issue close
