Env MEPs accept GMO cultivation deal

Members of the European Parliament’s Environment Committee have voted in favour of the latest deal reached on compromise proposals to allow national bans on the cultivation of EU-approved genetically modified crops. The compromise was reached by representatives of EU member states, the European Commission and the Parliament earlier this month. As lead parliamentary committee on the issue, acceptance was needed to progress to a vote by the full Parliament, which is scheduled for January 13th.
