Statement of NCFC President Chuck Conner on the Senate Cloture Vote on the Biotech Labeling Solutions Act


Washington, D.C. (March 16, 2016)—“Today’s Senate vote was deeply disappointing to America’s farmer co-ops and their farmer-owners. The legislation would have helped avoid a costly patchwork of state labeling laws, increased the information about food available to consumers, and given farmers some certainty as they make future planting decisions.

“Despite the outcome today, this issue and the need to resolve it will not go away. There continues to be ongoing discussions with senators from both sides of the aisle on finding a compromise that can achieve broad based Senate support. We remain committed to finding a path forward on this issue when Congress returns after Easter recess.”
