The Honorable Mitch McConnell Majority Leader
United States Senate S-230, The Capitol
Washington, DC 20510
The Honorable Harry Reid Minority Leader
United States Senate S-221, The Capitol
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Reid,
We, the undersigned organizations, represent all segments of the U.S. food chain—producers, cooperatives, agribusinesses, processors, seed makers, handlers, food and feed manufacturers, restaurants, lenders, and retailers. It is vitally important for the Senate to call up and pass the legislation drafted by Chairman Roberts and Ranking Member Stabenow on biotech labeling in order to avoid the economic costs of a patchwork of state laws that will directly impact consumers, farmers, and the entire food value chain.
We strongly support the Roberts-Stabenow biotech labeling agreement, which builds on the Biotechnology Labeling Solutions Act, that was approved by the Senate Agriculture Committee 14 – 6 on March 1st. The issue of biotech labeling is one of the most significant issues that the agriculture and food industry has faced in recent years. The U.S. agriculture and food industry creates over 17 million jobs, representing nearly 1 in 10 jobs. This very system—which produces the most abundant, the highest quality, and the most affordable food supply in the world—will be threatened with large economic costs without a national uniform solution to the biotech labeling issue.
The application of biotechnology to agricultural production has led to increased crop yields, decreased use of pesticides, and lower food costs for consumers. Congress must ensure we avoid senseless mandates that will thwart agricultural advancement and hurt consumers—especially those low income Americans who can least afford to pay more to feed their families.
Last fall, the Senate Agriculture Committee held an extensive hearing on biotech and biotech labeling. Witnesses from the three government agencies that have principal oversight of biotech approvals—the
U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency—all reaffirmed their long standing recognition of the safety of the technology. There was also broad discussion at the hearing about the need for a national uniform solution and that any solution should not stigmatize this important tool for our nation’s farmers. A Vermont-style on-pack only labeling mandate would mislead consumers and drive up their grocery bills.
We thank Chairman Roberts and Ranking Member Stabenow, for their strong leadership on this issue, and we ask that you schedule floor time and provide expedited consideration of this important and timely legislation. We pledge to work with senators on both sides of the aisle to ensure quick passage of this bipartisan proposal.
