Since August, legislators in the New Hampshire House Environment and Agriculture Subcommittee have been meeting every week to study whether or not to require mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients. We think they should!
Tomorrow there’s an important committee hearing about HB 660, a GMO labeling bill in New Hampshire and we need you to make urgent calls to members of the Agriculture Subcommittee to make sure you’re voice is being heard.
Already, Monsanto and biotech front groups have started generating robocalls across the state attempting to mislead citizens and legislators about what GMO labeling would really mean.
Make a CALL TODAY to let these elected officials know you support HB 660 to require GMO labeling!
