Proposed Senate Biotech Deal Would Preempt Vermont GMO Law: Will It Pass?
On June 23, 2016, Senate lawmakers agreed to a bipartisan proposal to require the first nationwide, mandatory disclosures for food containing genetically modified organisms , or "bioengineered" ingredients, as they would be labeled under the bill. If enacted, the legislation would preempt Vermont's first-in-the nation mandatory GMO labeling law, Act 120 , which goes into effect on July 1. Among other things, the proposed legislation released yesterday would require mandatory disclosures in the form of text, symbol, or electronic or digital link on all foods produced with "bioengineering."
