Debate Continues on. H.112

This Last Wednesday the Senate Judiciary Committee continued their deliberations on H.112, Vermont’s GMO labeling bill. The Committee has spent the last two weeks examining the work done by their colleagues in the House and the Senate to make sure that the bill is as strong as possible.

The Committee spent the morning hearing from a diverse set of voices about what products should be labeled if the bill becomes law. One concern of the Committee is should the bill also require labels on meat and milk that comes from animals that are not genetically engineered.

The Committee did not come to any resolutions, and will continue their work on the bill, and a vote could happen as early as next week. Keep checking VTRightToKnowGMOs.org and our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest on what’s happening in the State House.
