FLORIDA: Ask Your Lawmakers to Co-Sponsor GMO Labeling Bills!

Thanks to dedicated GMO labeling sponsors in the Florida House and Senate, new GMO labeling bills have been introduced in Florida!

SB 1700, SB 1708 and HB 1369 will bring Florida in line with the over 60 countries worldwide that already have GMO labels on food. Once Vermont’s law takes effect on July 1, we know other states will follow.

Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) are tirelessly lobbying Washington to preempt states’ rights to label GMOs and keep Vermont’s GMO labeling law from taking effect in July. So far they’ve been unsuccessful, but they aren’t giving up. Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate last week.

The best way to keep the U.S. Congress from passing a bill preempting Vermont is for more states, like Florida, to pass mandatory GMO labeling laws as soon as possible.

Call and email your state lawmakers and ask them to co-sponsor Florida’s GMO labeling bills!
