GMO Labeling Bill in the RI Legislature

18 02 2014

I have one last post about a pretty cool development. Currently, the Rhode Island General Assembly is considering two bills, H7042 and H7093, which would require food that is made with genetically  modified ingredients be labeled as such.

Only two states in the nation – Connecticut and Maine – have passed any sort of GMO labeling laws as of now, and it is possible for us to join our neighbors in being at the forefront of this movement. The two bills are sponsored, respectively, by Representative Canario and Representative Hull. You can get contact information for your representatives here, and for your senators here.

I have contacted the sponsors of these bills to express my support and gratitude, and offer my help. Will you do the same?

I will keep you as up-to-date as I am on this issue, and let’s hope and pray that Rhode Island is on the right side of history with this issue!
