English term or phrase: off the hook
***GMO grass is creeping across Oregon – and GMO firm is off the hook for cleanup***

An unapproved GMO creeping bentgrass that is tolerant to Roundup is spreading as an invasive weed in Oregon. So far, the developer company, Scotts, has led the battle to rein in its escapee. But in a series of decisions over the last several years, the USDA has relieved Scotts of future responsibility in return for the company’s promise not to market the grass. After this summer, Scotts no longer has to bankroll cleanup efforts. Now, Jerry Erstrom, a retired Bureau of Land Management natural resource specialist who chairs the Malheur County Weed Advisory Board, and others say there are no legal safeguards to keep the task — with its reported $250,000 annual price tag — from becoming the burden of local growers and the state and county governments.

Das Gras wachsen hören – sehr gut hören können; gut informiert sein; sich über baldige oder eingebildete Probleme Gedanken machen, übervorsichtig/ängstlich sein; Entwicklungen vorzeitig erkennen können
