  (c) Regulations.--The Secretary may issue regulations to implement  subsection (a), including regulations requiring that any plant, plant  product, biological control organism, noxious weed, article, or means of  conveyance imported, entered, to be exported, or moved in interstate commerce--

 What are they up to?

They're doing this because they can and because the move benefits the huge  biotech agribusiness companies.  However, it looks a lot like they want to do this soon; when there's a need to bypass regulation.  Why would they want to do that now or the near future?  Maybe there's some hot product the corporate food industry wants to get to market in a hurry, so important they cant fool around with courts and studies of scientific safety.

There is too much exposure and bad publicity associated with this to make the move a typical example of legislative dominance.  There's something up.  We'll find out soon enough given the ubiquitous presence of corn and soy throughout the manufactured foods we eat everyday.
