Wheat Growers Support Roberts-Stabenow GMO Labeling Bill- Call for Prompt Consideration and Passage

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:29:50 CDT

Wheat Growers Support Roberts-Stabenow GMO Labeling Bill- Call for Prompt Consideration and Passage The following statement has been issued to the media by the National Association of Wheat Growers- expressing their support for the compromise GMO Labeling Bill jointly authored by Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas and Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan.


Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow have released a long-awaited GMO labeling agreement.


NAWG applauds the bipartisan efforts to secure a national standard that preempts a state-by-state patchwork, thereby avoiding a conflict of regulatory laws between states. NAWG supports the proposed bill, which allows for a variety of labeling options which do not vilify biotechnology.


“GMOs have been scientifically proven to be safe for human consumption and there is no nutritional difference,” says NAWG President Gordon Stoner. “It is vital that a patchwork of state laws not jeopardize access to safe, sustainably produced food; this national standard will assure food security for generations to come.”


NAWG encourages the Senate to pass the bill as soon as possible before the coming recess.
