AG Takes Action Against Bayer Over Deceptive Marketing About Risks of Pesticides
A Vermont law requiring most genetically modified food to be labeled as such remains on schedule to take effect July 1. The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted not to advance a bill that would have blocked such state laws.
BOSTON (AP) - State lawmakers are planning to hear from the public this week on a bill that would require that all foods sold in Massachusetts containing genetically engineered ingredients be clearly labeled.
Labeling food that is genetically modified shouldn't be controversial but the familiar combination of money and politics has made it so. Massachusetts may provide clarity.
Boston, MA – On June 11th, elected officials will hear public input on proposed legislation requiring the labeling of genetically modified foods (also known as “GMO's”). Just days earlier, Connecticut passed first-in-the-nation GMO labeling legislation, which requires other states to adopt similar laws before it takes effect. A group called “Massachusetts Right to Know GMOs” is now mobilizing other groups of advocates across the state to speak in support of labeling at the upcoming hearing.
