President Trump Signs an Executive Order To Significantly Reduce Regulations on GMO Plants & Animals

President Trump recently signed an executive order (EO) that commands federal agencies to scale back on the regulations of genetically modified organisms, better known as GMOs. This executive order commands agencies to exempt numerous GMOs from regulations, allowing an increasing number of GMO crops and animals to not be reviewed scientifically by any federal agencies. This order is executed about one week after the U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed to weaken the regulation of GMO's that fall under its administration.
