AFBF President Zippy Duvall Gives His Reaction on the Passage of GMO Labeling BillThu, 14 Jul 2016 15:57:11 CDT
American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall issued the following statement regarding the passage of S. 764 on GMO disclosure.
“Today’s House passage of GMO disclosure legislation means we now begin the work of putting in place a uniform, national labeling system that will provide balanced, accurate information to consumers. Genetically engineered crops have a decades-long track record of safety and benefits for agricultural productivity and our environment. This legislation helps to continue those benefits by avoiding the confusion of differing and potentially misleading labeling standards from state to state. The next stop is the president’s desk. We are pleased that Congress has moved quickly to finish the job.”
