Daniel K. Paleka Jr.

Perhaps, currently Hawaii County Bill 113 bans open air cultivation of genetically modified crops except for GE papaya and requires registration by farmers. Farmers, and other parties claiming to be affected by the ban became plaintiffs and have filed suit against the County of Hawaii requesting declaratory and conjunctive relief.

Pose this question to voters. Beyond a ballot initiative, lobby for truth in labeling. Launch campaigns promoting “Hawaii grown” & “grown locally without pesticides and genetics.” Make government work more effectively for farmers seeking to grow food and medicine on Hawaii island and for residents here. Focus on reducing imported food.
