Last Thursday, the House passed the Roberts-Stabenow agreement on GMO labeling with a vote of 306-117. You can view the roll call here. Now, KyCorn urges President Obama to quickly sign this bill into law. Once signed, the legislation will stop implementation of the Vermont mandatory GMO labeling law, and prevent other states from passing similar bills. The bill passed last week ensures that mandatory, on-pack labels do not place an unwarranted stigma on safe, proven technology.
Thank you to Senator McConnell and Congressmen Barr, Guthrie, Rogers and Whitfield, for helping advance this landmark legislation. For more information on the need for a federal labeling standard, visit the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food, at www.CFSAF.org.
