Jackson County is the only county in Oregon to hold its own vote on whether to ban genetically modified (GMO) crops. 

And it will likely be the last, since the Oregon legislature banned further local votes.  But measure 15-119 is an interesting test case.  We heard from the pro-measure side on March 5; John Watt from Good Neighbor Farmers--opposed to the measure--joins us in this segment.
