|GMO Labeling Continues|
At this writing, the GMO labeling bill has been passed unanimously out of the Appropriations Committee to the Senate floor for a vote. Hopefully by the time you read this, it will have been passed successfully, making it the first GE labeling bill in the country without any "trigger clauses," i.e., depending on neighboring states' provisions. It is planned to go into effect July 1, 2016. Co-ops all over Vermont helped make this happen, it's very exciting. Now, we will have sent a message about simply needing to know what is in our food, a basic citizen's right. Thank you for your support in this endeavor. Will our nation follow our example?
