Bill 79, the anti-GMO bill, has brought out a lot of concern and a lot of anxiety.
I say that we need to slow down. It would be premature to rush into a decision on this bill without taking the time to hear everybody’s input and address all the issues on the table.
Before we make big decisions – any of which could have unintended consequences – we should set up some sort of task force to look at the bigger picture of Hawai‘i’s self-sufficiency, and how we are going to achieve that.
How are we going to get there, all of us together? We need to end up at a place where we aloha each other, and take care of everybody.
Let’s not rush to pass this bill without fully understanding the bigger picture.
