Tell Your Representative to Strike the King Amendment from the Farm Bill!

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) added an amendment to the Farm Bill, which is waiting on the floor of the House for a vote. This amendment may well have negative implications for GMO labeling. A state that requires GMO labeling on its food, it could be argued, creates a trade barrier between a state that does not require GMO labeling.

This could run up against the dormant commerce clause, which limits individual state authority to regulate intrastate commerce even in the absence of a conflicting federal law. This is a back-door way of dissuading states from passing labeling laws. It could prevent states from banning GMO products altogether.

Please contact your representative immediately and ask him or her for an amendment to strike the King Amendment from the House Farm Bill!
