It's almost hard to believe those little 198 words have caused so much furor all over the internet. Russia Today says it "grossly protects biotech corporations such as...Monsanto...from litigation." It doesn't. Food Democracy Now claims it "interferes with judicial review" which is a stretch and that it "eliminates federal agency oversight" which it doesn't at all. The International Business Times claims it "effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of [GMO] or [GE] seeds, no matter what health issues may arise...in the future."
What the "Farmers Assurance Provision" (the section's official name) actually does is it "directs the Secretary of Agriculture to grant temporary deregulation status so that farmers and growers can continue the cultivation of GMO crops that had previously received department approval during the pendency of a court action challenging such approval and [the] subsequent regulatory review."
