U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today issued the following statement regarding this week's European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling on newer mutagenesis methods, otherwise known as genome editing.

"Government policies should encourage scientific innovation without creating unnecessary barriers or unjustifiably stigmatizing new technologies. Unfortunately, this week's ECJ ruling is a setback in this regard in that it narrowly considers newer genome editing methods to be within the scope of the European Union's regressive and outdated regulations governing genetically modified organisms.

Editor's Note

Until I can find another reporter, I'm having trouble keeping up, so I began a new series called News Briefs with the date they are posted. They are of interest to readers, but I don't have the time to interview and write stories about the person or issue, so I'm just telling you the bits of information, so you don't miss out.

Anybody interested in a part-time freelance reporter job with the Beat, give me a shout at editor@grantcountybeat.com. You need good spelling and grammar and can write a decent report without any of your opinion in the article. Opinion belongs on the Editorial page.

Those new to providing news releases to the Beat are asked to please check out submission guidelines at http://www.grantcountybeat.com/about/submissions They are for your information to make life easier on the readers, as well as the editor.
