Want to get involved in a GMO labeling campaign in your state? You can join Right to Know GMO, the coalition of 37 states collaborating on statewide GMO labeling laws. Right to Know GMO is a grassroots movement of mothers, farmers and citizens dedicated to regaining our basic right to know what we’re eating and feeding our families.
At least 24 states have introduced GMO labeling laws this year. Connecticut just this week passed a bill out of the Public Health Committee, by an overwhelming majority vote of 23-4. Washington’s I-522, a citizens’ initiative, is making its way toward a November 2013 vote. Massachusetts has five bills pending, and Vermont bill, which passed out of the House Agriculture Committee on March 1.
Of course the opposition isn’t sitting idly by. The New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau has formed a front group, NM Food Feeding Families, even though the bill there died this year. And Monsanto is cranking up its propaganda machine in Oregon, behind a front group called the Oregonians for Food and Shelter.
