Introduced in Senate (06/14/1999)

Expresses the sense of the Senate that: (1) as the world trading system moves toward a reduction of tariff and nontariff barriers, all countries should work to ensure that scientifically unfounded new barriers are not erected; (2) the President should raise at the June 1999 G-8 Summit the issues surrounding the use of, and trade in, agricultural biotechnology; and (3) as world leaders prepare for a new round of negotiations on agriculture in the World Trade Organization, such Summit is an appropriate forum to seek a consensus with the major trading partners of the United States regarding recognition of the global benefits of agricultural biotechnology, increasing consumer knowledge and understanding of such biotechnology and its benefits, and the adoption of rational, scientifically-based systems for the regulation of biotechnology products and for eliminating unjustified barriers to the use of such products in international trade.
