Congressman Collin Peterson will Support Senate GMO Labeling Bill if it Reaches a Vote in the House

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:26:59 CDT

House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson today made the following additional statement after Senate Agriculture Committee leaders announced an agreement on labeling foods containing genetically engineered crops.



“While I prefer the House passed voluntary approach for the labeling of food produced from genetically engineered crops, I will support the Senate GMO labeling bill should it come to a vote in the House and I will encourage my colleagues to join me. It is not a perfect bill but after careful review I believe it is in the best interest of farmers, consumers, and food manufacturers to have clear direction and certainty in this area. I have concluded that any further delay would needlessly prolong the uncertainty created by the Vermont law. It’s important to find a balance between label transparency and the safety of these crops.”
