Nishihara, a Democrat and chairman of the senate's agricultural 
committee, introduced the Right to Farm bill in his chamber. Nishihara 
did not respond to a Truthout request to comment on the bill, but a 
review of Nishihara's campaign finance records show that Monsanto was 
one of the top 15 donors to the senator's 2012 election campaign, with 
$1,000 of donations. George Morris and John Radcliffe, who lobby for 
Monsanto and other corporations, gave Nishihara $1,000 and $1,500, 
respectively. Alicia Maluafiti, director of the pro-industry Hawaii Crop 
Improvement Association, donated $1,000 during the 2012 election cycle. 
Syngenta gave Nishihara $500 that year.
