week, we reported that another voluntary labeling bill in the Senate was in the
works, introduced by Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS). Last Friday the bill was
released, and it has already been scheduled for a mark-up. This means the bill
could be considered by the full Senate as early as this Friday.
speed with which this bill is moving through Congress is a testament to the
power of the biotech industry and Big Food lobby, which is desperate to pass
voluntary labeling legislation before Vermont’s mandatory labeling law goes
into effect. Sen. Roberts’ bill has some minor differences with the
House-passed Pompeo bill, but the main points are the same: the bill would
preempt mandatory labeling efforts by the states and institute instead a
voluntary labeling standard.
Please write your senators and TODAY and ask
them to oppose this bill!
