9 Days – that’s right, the number of days the Senate has to act to pass a bipartisan food labeling solution that protects our nation’s family farmers, consumers and small business owners has now hit single digits.
We’ve heard progress has been made, but we need to get past the goal line, not close to it. Farmers, consumers and food companies need a bipartisan agreement and – and fast. Even when the Senate finds agreement, the House still has to pass the Senate’s version with enough time to send it to the President’s desk.
All of this needs to take place before the July 1, which is when Vermont’s GMO labeling mandate is set to take effect. If allowed to stand, will dramatically alter American agriculture and stigmatize a crucial tool that helps American farmers feed a hungry world.
We can’t afford to wait – there’s simply too much at stake.
Don’t delay, your voice could make the difference.
We are a broad-based coalition representing the entire American agriculture food supply chain – from farm to fork. We are committed to increasing the public’s understanding about the science and safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and advocating for science-based policies that keep food affordable for every American.
