On February 19th, Senator Pat Roberts, Chair of the Agriculture Committee, introduced a new bill, S.2609 (read the bill HERE), to take away your rights – it’s the DARK Act on steroids. The bill would preempt Vermont’s and all other state mandatory GMO labeling laws forever and put voluntary labeling under the jurisdiction of the USDA.
The USDA would likely allow foods created with a new and controversial genetic engineering technique, Gene Editing, to be labeled Non-GMO. With Vermont’s mandatory labeling law set to take effect on July 1st, Monsanto and Big Food are in a panic and their government puppets are not wasting any time.
