NCGA President Chip Bowling Praises Passage of S. 764, Urges Presidential Action

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 15:49:25 CDT

NCGA President Chip Bowling Praises Passage of S. 764, Urges Presidential Action The National Corn Growers Association praised the U.S. House of Representatives for its vote today passing S. 764. Particularly, the association praised Chairmen Conaway and Roberts, Ranking Members Peterson and Stabenow, Congressmen Pompeo and Butterfield, and all of the members of Congress, from both sides of the aisle, who worked together to pass this bill.




Now, NCGA calls upon President Obama to quickly sign this bill into law, thus avoiding the negative impacts of Vermont's law.




"Today, our representatives in the House built upon last week's work in the Senate, taking another important step toward bringing consistency to the marketplace,' said NCGA President Chip Bowling, a farmer from Maryland. "This achievement was made possible as members of the food and agricultural value chain came together as never before to advance a solution that works for farmers, food companies and, most importantly, consumers.




"S. 764 ensures consumers have the access to product information without stigmatizing this safe, proven technology that America's farmers value. Now that both houses of Congress have come together to address this important issue, we ask that the President take the final step by signing this legislation into law."




America's corn farmers, along with other family farmers across the country, rely on agricultural biotechnology to meet the demand of an ever-growing global population, while reducing their impact on the environment. The bill passed today ensures that mandatory, on-pack labels do not place an unwarranted stigma on safe, proven technology.




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.
