GMO Labeling Bill Still Alive

Thanks to the steadfast action of the GMO Right to Know Coalition and VPIRG members across the state and beyond, the Agriculture Committee has been given more time to consider The VT Right to Know Genetically Modified Food Act (H.722), and testimony will resume in the statehouse on Wednesday, March 20th.

Due to your support, our right to know about the presence of GMOs in the food we eat and feed our families lives to fight another day. However, the fight is by no means over, and we will keep you in the loop as we continue to battle corporate interests over Vermonter’s right to know.
