Hollow laugh. You might have hoped that the high-profile

Does independence on semi rings imply independence on the generated sigma algebras?
Let $\Omega$ be a set and let $M$ be a sigma algebra on it. That is, $M$ contains $\emptyset$, $M$ is closed under complements and $M$ is closed under countable unions. Furthermore assume that $P$ is a probability measure on $M$. Now we define a semi ring $A$ as a collection of subsets of $\Omega$ such that $A$ contains $\emptyset$, $A$ is closed under finite intersections and such that for all $S, T \in A$ we have that $S \setminus T$ can be written as a finite disjoint union of elements of $A$. Let $A_1$ and $A_2$ be two semi rings contained in $M$ and assume that for all $S_1 \in A_1$ and all $S_2 \in A_2$ we have that $S_1$ and $S_2$ are independent; $P(S_1 \cap S_2) = P(S_1)P(S_2)$.
Let $M_1$ and $M_2$ be the sigma algebras generated by $A_1$ and $A_2$ respectively. Does independence of the semi rings carry over to the sigma algebras generated by them? That is, does it hold that for all $S_1 \in M_1$ and all $S_2 \in M_2$ we have $P(S_1 \cap S_2) = P(S_1)P(S_2)$?
