On June 10th, the U.S. Senate voted 66 to 27 to approve its farm bill, S.954, the Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2013. During debate prior to this action, an amendment sponsored by Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and four other Senators to clarify that States can voluntarily enact their own GMO labeling laws was defeated. An amendment of Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) to overturn the so-called “Monsanto Protection Act” (MPA) was defeated. This new law permits Monsanto, DuPont, and other companies to sell genetically modified seeds that have not been properly examined for their effect on other farmers, the environment, and human health. It grants judicial immunity to big farming companies who sell seeds and plant crops that are later determined to be unsafe for human or animal consumption.

The truth about GMO:

 

Washington farmers, food producers and scientists urge you to look into the facts carefully before you vote on I-522.

The promoters of Initiative 522 on Washington’s November 2013 statewide ballot claim it’s just a “simple” proposal to require the labeling of “genetically engineered” (GE) foods.

In fact, I-522 is a complicated, costly measure that is not what it seems.

I-522 would mandate special food labeling regulations in Washington that don’t exist in any other state.

These Washington-only regulations would:

  • unfairly hurt Washington farmers, food producers and grocers;
  • create more state bureaucracy, costing taxpayers millions; and
  • increase food prices paid by Washington families.

Please DO NOT SUPPORT I-522, more information here: http://factsabout522.com/
