Senate passage of legislation that establishes federal pre-emption of state-by-state mandatory GMO labeling laws moves the country one step closer to a uniform, national plan that will provide consumers easy access to information about genetically modified food, American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said in statement.
“This bill is not perfect, but it would avoid the chaos of 50 different state laws and a confusing array of labels for ingredients scientifically proven safe. Now that the Senate has done its job, we ask the House to move swiftly so this needed legislation can be delivered to the president for his signature,” Duvall said.
