Dairy Farmers Thank President Obama for Signing GMO Labeling Bill Into Law

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 16:36:59 CDT

Dairy Farmers Thank President Obama for Signing GMO Labeling Bill Into Law On Friday, President Barack Obama signed into law the so called GMO Labeling Bill, which passed the Senate in June and the House in July. After the President signed the bill into law, John Wilson, the Senior Vice President and Chief Fluid Marketing Officer for Dairy Farmers of America released the following statement:


“Today marks a significant victory for agriculture producers as well as consumers with President Barack Obama signing into law a federal framework for the labeling of genetically modified (GM) foods.


"This bill provides one uniform, national standard for the labeling of GM foods so every consumer in the United States, not just Vermont, can have easy access to information about the food they purchase.


"We support the sound science behind GMs and the increased productivity and sustainability they have afforded the nation and the world. This bill allows consumers the choice and opportunity to have a greater understanding about the food our nation’s farmers provide.


"We would like to thank the president, the House of Representatives and the champions of the legislation, specifically Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas and Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, for their leadership in this effort.”
