Maui GMO Initiative

Second Circuit Court Judge Rhonda Loo ruled this week that a ballot initiative regarding genetically modified crops may be printed by Maui County.  A citizens group in favor of GMO farming had filed a lawsuit earlier this month to stop the measure from being placed on the November ballot.

The lawsuit requested that the court grant a restraining order that would prevent the County of Maui from printing a ballot containing the initiative.  The ballot initiative was originally brought into play by SHAKA Movement which is a citizens group opposing the use of GMO crops on Maui.
