National Corn Growers Praise Senate Passage of Roberts- Stabenow GMO Labeling Bill- Call on the House to Pass it Quickly

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 22:46:13 CDT

National Corn Growers Praise Senate Passage of Roberts- Stabenow GMO Labeling Bill- Call on the House to Pass it Quickly The National Corn Growers Association praised the U.S. Senate for its vote today passing the Roberts-Stabenow agreement. Now NCGA urges the House to quickly take up and pass this important legislation.


"Today, our representatives in the Senate took an important step toward bringing consistency to the marketplace,' said NCGA President Chip Bowling, a farmer from Maryland. "The Roberts-Stabenow agreement ensures consumers have the access to product information they deserve without stigmatizing this safe, proven technology that America's farmers value. Now, we urge the House to build upon the Senate's work today by quickly taking up and passing this legislation."


NCGA, working with partners across the value chain, has pushed for a solution to this issue for more than two years now as a member of the Coalition for Safe Affordable Food.
