No 5-year moratorium on taro

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin yesterday carried an op-ed by Don Blakeley, a retired professor of philosophy on the "Many meanings of taro", which inaccurately stated that a 5-year moratorium on genetically modified taro began on July 1. For the record, there is no 5-year moratorium. The bill, SB958 was recommitted back to the Committee on Agriculture where it died.
