GMO labeling bill in jeopardy

 

ACTION ALERT

HB 6519, AN ACT CONCERNING GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOOD

The Public Health Committee overwhelmingly voted in favor of HB 6519 with a vote of 23-4 on April 2nd. The bill was then analyzed by the Office of Legislative Research and Office of Fiscal Analysis with a favorable review. HB 6519 will now most likely be sent to the General Law Committee for a vote. We need to ensure that the committee will vote in favor. If your legislator is on the General Law Committee, please reach out to them and ask them to support the bill. If your legislator is not on General Law, ask them to speak to their colleagues on General Law and encourage them to vote in favor. We have heard that the General Law Committee is not in favor of the bill as of now. We need your help. If you are not sure who your local town or city legislator is, you can enter your address to find them here.

HB 6527, AN ACT CONCERNING GENETICALLY ENGINEERED BABY FOOD AND BABY FORMULA

The Children’s Committee overwhelmingly voted in favor of HB 6527 with a vote of 11-1 on March 12th. The bill is currently in front of the Public Health Committee for a vote. While it would seem logical that the Public Health Committee would vote in favor of HB 6527 as it did for HB 6519, we can not take anything for granted. If your legislator is on the Public Health Committee, please contact them and ask them to support HB 6527. If your legislator is not on Public Health, ask them to speak to their colleagues on Public Health and encourage them to vote in favor. If you are not sure who your local town or city legislator is, you can enter your address to find them here.
