Sen. Roy Blunt reportedly pushed forward a provision, which was added to an unrelated bill, that compels the USDA to overlook federal court decisions blocking its approvals of new genetically modified crops.
Blunt said he worked with Monsanto to craft the provision, reports Mother Jones, which labels the Missouri senator as "Monsanto's Man in Washington."
Monsanto contributed $64,250 to Blunt's campaign in 2012 and $44,250 to his 2010 campaign.
