Statement of NCFC President Chuck Conner on the Senate GMO Labeling Procedural Vote


Washington, D.C. (June 29, 2016)–“The bipartisan vote on a procedural motion to set up consideration of the Roberts-Stabenow biotech labeling agreement is a strong show of support for the package. It reflects the support of the food and agriculture community, illustrated by the recent letter in support of the agreement that was signed by over 1,000 farm groups, food manufacturers, farmer co-ops and retailers.

“We look forward to the Senate acting on the substance of the measure next week when they return from a brief Fourth of July recess. Prompt action by Congress can help head off the consumer confusion and supply chain upheaval that will be caused by Vermont’s mandatory biotech labeling law that goes into effect on Friday.”
