HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

.

The battle over genetically modified crops is turning into one of the most
expensive political debates in Hawaii's history.

.

Hawaii News Now analyzed campaign contributions and lobbying expenses by
both pro- and anti-GMO organizations. We found that large seed companies
and their employees spent more than half a million dollars on either one
or both of those efforts during the past eight years.

.

Anti-GMO groups spent nearly $270,000, mostly during the 2016 election
season.

.

Those numbers don't include the nearly $9 million that was spent by both
sides on the 2014 ballot initiative that sought to place a moratorium on
GMO's grown in Maui County.

.

"Look anyone who spends that kind of money gets a lot of access," said
University of Hawaii Political Science Professor Colin Moore. "They also
have a lot of jobs behind them."

.

The fact that both sides feel the need to spend large sums of money
worries some campaign watchdogs.

.

"People with the most money are going to have the loudest voice, and it's
going to be corrupting the entire system," said former state Campaign
Spending Commission Director Bob Watada.

.

Public records show that Monsanto Hawaii was the state's largest GMO
donor, giving more than $187,000. Syngenta was next, at $53,000, followed
by Dupont Pioneer, which gave $47,000.

.

Hawaii News Now found no evidence that any of the campaign spending was
illegal.
