Peterson Statement on Senate Labeling Bill
June 23, 2016
House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson today made the following statement after Senate Agriculture Committee leaders announced an agreement on labeling foods containing genetically engineered crops.
“Today’s announcement brings us closer to providing clear labeling guidelines for genetically engineered crops. A patchwork of labeling laws across state lines is simply not workable and I am committed to finding a solution that balances the consumer desire for information with the scientific evidence of the safety of these crops. I will be closely reviewing this bill and listening to stakeholder input as this process moves forward.”
