Statement of NCFC President Chuck Conner on Senate Cloture Vote on GMO Legislation


Washington, DC (July 6, 2016)–“The Senate’s action today invoking cloture on S. 764, the legislation authored by Senators Pat Roberts and Debbie Stabenow establishing a uniform national food disclosure standard for foods containing biotech ingredients, is an important milestone in seeing this bill move forward in the legislative process. The bill will ensure that consumers have access to more information than ever before about the food they eat while preserving important tools for farmers to produce the crops needed to feed a growing world.

“Senators Roberts and Stabenow have shown tremendous leadership in both crafting this legislation and shepherding through to the vote today and they should be applauded for their efforts on behalf of farmers, co-ops and consumers. We hope that once the Senate takes a final vote on the measure that the House will take it up and pass it—and that the President will sign it—before Congress goes into recess for the party conventions.”
