Another attack on our right to know- Action needed!

We’ve been successfully beating back challenge after challenge to our GMO labeling law since its inception- and now another has popped up.

Lobbyists for big food companies are trying to sneak changes to Vermont’s first-in-the-nation GMO labeling law into the must-pass budget bill, trying to secure last-second exemptions.

As you know, corporate food giants are suing Vermont to stop our GMO Right to Know law from taking effect on July 1, and trying to get Congress to block our law by passing the DARK Act. Now, proposals by lobbyists for those same food manufacturers are being pushed in the State House that would add more exemptions and make Act 120 harder to enforce. Our senators need to know this is unacceptable.

We are winning in the courts and in Congress, and now is not the time to make unnecessary changes to our labeling law. Please take a minute and CALL THE STATE HOUSE. Tell your senator “Don’t touch our GMO labeling law!”
