Mayor signs GMO ban



Mayor Billy Kenoi has signed a bill that will limit the use of transgenic, or genetically modified crops. Bill 113, which bans open air use of GMO crops with some exceptions, gained final approval from the County Council last month on a 6-3 vote. 

In a signing statement, Kenoi said the ordinance expresses the desires and demands of our community for a safe, sustainable agricultural sector that can help feed our people, while keeping our precious island productive and healthy.
