House Committee Votes Oct 29th & Nov 7th - Act Now! -Tell New Hampshire: "I support GMO labeling!" - Don't let Monsanto stop GMO labeling in New Hampshire!

Tell New Hampshire - I want GMO labeling now It's time to stand up for your rights - Live Free and Label GMOs!

Right now the effort to label GMOs is heating up in New Hampshire and we need you to take immediate action today to let your elected officials know that you believe that the citizens of New Hampshire have the right to know if their food has been genetically engineered in a laboratory.

For the past several months, the New Hampshire House Environment and Agriculture Committee has been holding public work sessions in an effort to explore the necessity for GMO labeling in the Granite state, listening to the expert testimony on HB 660, “Requiring the Labeling of Genetically Engineered Foods and Agricultural Commodities”.

A vote is scheduled to take place tomorrow, October 29th in the House Subcommittee to pass the bill onto a full vote in the House Agriculture Committee on November 7th.

Already the opposition has been working behind the scenes trying to kill this common sense legislation that simply affirms your right to know what’s in the food you buy and feed your family. The opposition has even go so far as to hire a company to make Robo-calls to legislators urging them to vote against GMO labeling.

We need your voice to be heard in New Hampshire today!

After you contact your representative, invite 3 friends to join you in standing up for your right to label GMOs!

Labeling foods produced with GMOs is simple and common sense and allows us to make our own choices about how to feed ourselves and our families.

Most crops grown in New Hampshire and sold as human food are not genetically modified making this a win-win for New Hampshire. It will have little to no impact on our farmers, AND studies have shown there will be little to no cost to consumers at the grocery stores.

Please call or write the members of NH's House Environment and Agriculture Committee listed below to make your voice heard.

Committee Members who are also on the Subcommittee:

Additional Environmental and Agriculture Committee Members:

For years, activists across New Hampshire have been working hard to introduce reasonable legislation that would give this basic information to consumers about their food.
