Farm Bureau's Zippy Duvall Hails Passage of Voluntary GMO Labeling Bill Out of Senate Ag Committee

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 14:45:51

Farm Bureau's Zippy Duvall Hails Passage of Voluntary GMO Labeling Bill Out of Senate Ag Committee Zippy Duvall, President of the American Farm Bureau Federation, has offered praise for the action in the Senate Ag Committee that resulted in the Pat Roberts voluntary GMO Labeling Bill passing the Committee earlier today. Here is a statement released by the general farm organization that is attributed to Duvall:



"Today's bipartisan committee approval of Chairman Pat Roberts' labeling bill is a reaffirmation of common sense and fair play in the marketplace. The legislation establishes national standards for foods made with genetically engineered ingredients, ensuring consumers and farmers aren't forced to deal with a confusing patchwork of different state labeling mandates. It requires that labels be based in science and supports our long-standing grassroots policy for voluntary labeling and factual information sharing on the value of this important agricultural technology.
 

"Farm Bureau believes in meaningful disclosure that serves to inform and educate consumers on the innovative technologies farmers and ranchers use to provide food for this nation and our customers around the world. We support Chairman Roberts' bill without hesitation, we appreciate the bipartisan support shown by the committee, and we look forward to swift passage by the Senate. We stand ready to work with Senate and House leaders to finalize this important legislation and secure the president's signature."
